Nauticat granny bars

I want to fit granny bars (otherwise known as a mast pulpit) to my Nauticat 331. Having the bars fabricated is not a problem but fixing them to the deck is. The deck is not a balsa sandwich but solid GRP and very strong but gaining access to the void between the deck and the head lining to fit backing plates and nuts and washers is impossible, according to Nauticat Yachts and various other luminaries. I have been advised that using self tapping screws would be ok. Anyone out there done it or have an opinion?

Try setting these nut inserts potted into oversized holes drilled from deck side.

The Nutty nut product looks good but the setting into the deck bit provides a bit of a challenge. What prevents them from pulling out?

Re: Nauticat granny bars

Ah...disregard the above. More careful examination of the nutty website provides the answer.
