Add a fitting to fiberglass with inaccesible back?
The replacement swivel jammer came for my Javelin today, and it's not going to be a bolt-up solution. The old piece had four screws to hold it down, and the new one is a three-screw pattern.
I'm pretty sure I can't get to the 'other' side of the fiberglass on that portion of the centerboard trunk, and even if two of the screw holes line up, I'm not comfortable trusting only two screws to hold my mainsheet fast.
Is there a way I can attach this fixture without dissecting the whole centerboard trunk? Should I just work with what I've got (block, but no cleat) and deal with it in the rapidly-approaching off season?
