Re: How are lifeline stanchons mounted?

The stanchion holder has a slot in it which fits over the toe rail, It is then bolted to the toe rail and then the deck. Our toe rails are bolted onto the hull deck joint with 4 inch centers, all great strength vs a stanchion base embedded in the gelcoat and bolted through it.

If the stanchion gets struck or wears over time it wobbles in the base vs eventually weaking the gel coat and causing leaks like many stanchions.

You have to have the proper toe rails of course, but this design is a pretty good one. As was stated you it also gives you more room on the gunwhales. The disadvantage is they are more outboard and you must be careful of pilings when docking.

Unless I'm mistaken, with those rail mounts, the bolt that goes through the deck utilizes one of the existing holey rail bolt holes as well, so no extra drilling.

On the C&C ones, there are two on the base which re 4" apart and can utilize the exciting toe rail bolts. Not all toe rils have 4" apart though. Additionally there is a horizontal bolt through the stanchion base which after it is put over the toerail slot holds the base to the toerail.

How the hell does one bed a screw when you can not hold it steady while putting on the nut?

That's what crew or helpers are for - they hold the other end steady.

Well in my case there is no other end. Just screws going through aluminum that is sandwiched inbetween the glass. No bolts or nuts. Maybe a bolt but no nut.

Re: How are lifeline stanchons mounted?

In that situation the screw carries some of the bedding with it as it is screwed in - just make sure you start with lots.

I need to make one more post so I can see images.
I need to see toe rail attachments.
