> I like your recessed fittings. How many will there be?
you probably mean how many are there ? there are 8 fittings with a diagonal brass bar. they are used for the "X" in front & behind the cockpit.
there are 2 more with parallel brass bar, they are located behind the rear hatch.
& there are 2 more big ones for the lifting points, 18" infront of the rear tip & 24" behind the front tip of the hull.

> them before or after you nstalled the deck?
I installed them before I attached the deck to the hull, although it can also be done after that. I just figured it will be easier.
