It's quite simple actually, just takes a sliding clamp. Most of the ones I've seen have self aligning stainless ball and joint type.
You can even build your own, there are a number of plan sets available, or kits.
A sliding dovetail with a knock in wedge would hold it for rowing, for much more than that you have to go with a 'real' mechanical fastener.
As long as the interior bulkhead is higher than the waterline it stays dry.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
