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,
