Mounting points for cable ties?

Hi All...

I need to secure the bilge pump hose so that it can not rub against the drive shaft. There is only one place the hose can enter the bilge, and if i leave it lose it will contact the shaft.

I am looking for something I can glue to the side of the bilge and then put a cable tie through. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

you could use these, you can find them at any electric supply house. make sure you degrease where you stick em and use a few.

they also have zip ties with a hole on the end for a screw

Be aware, that most of those types of cable tie mounts fail after a short while, if under any tension. I would recommend using the weld-mount system or screw-mounted cable tie mounting points, rather than double-sided adhesive ones.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have not had success getting stick-on cable tie mounts to hold in our boats. I use screw or bolt types now. One option is to epoxy a piece of wood to the attachment point, and then screw a mount into that.

That would be my only option then, because if I put a screw in this spot it goes through the hull. But its not a bad idea. I was thinking of using 4000UV to secure these directly to the fiberglass in the bilge.

A block in the bilge is the way to go - but a raw wood block? I dunno -- I should think the wood block is too likely to rot. If were me, I would rather make an epoxy block, glue the block to the hull, then put the screw for the cable tie holder in the block.

Anyone contemplating this on a cored hull should be very, very careful. If the screw penetrates the inner skin, it can create a pathway for water into the hull core. If you're going to do it anyway, bed the screw in some goop.

I would rather use the adhesive ties and replace them as they fail, or be certain that any screws go into uncored areas.

Reminds me of a story...

This one time, a long time ago, I had a 1959 MGA that I was working on. It was late at night, and I was very tired. There were several wires to the fuel pump that I needed to wire-tie up out of the way temporarily, so I hung them from the drive shaft.

THe repair worked fine, and I quickly forgot about the temporary fix.

Guess what happened?

That's right. Started up the car, and made it almost to the end of the driveway when the fuel pump quit for some reason.


on your question - get a hunk of Teak from somewhere, wipe it and the hull area down with acetone, 5200 the teak to the hull, and you have a place to attach all sorts of things - your bilge hose, or even wires to your fuel pump.

Best Regards,

e

I was going to use short pieces of PVC molding, 3/4" square as sold at Home Depot. Caulk in place where needed, then screw into it. Cheaper than teak, $5 for 8'.
