Recessed Deck Line Fitting
Add an elegant touch to your next kayak. These recessed deck line padeyes create a secure tie down anchor for rigging deck lines on a kayak or similar small boat.
These deckline fittings feature room for two 1/4" [~6.5mm] diameter lines. The lines can either be standard rope or elastic shock cord. The bar the rope is looped under is formed in a "dovetail" shape to resist pulling out. Properly installed one of these fittings is plenty strong enough to lift the whole kayak.
Available in a variety of wood combinations, the standard is a maple body with a cherry bar. Also available in cherry with a curly maple bar and mahogany with curly maple. Special orders are possible after consultation with Nick.
Note: The hole cutting jig, sold seperately, is required to create an accurately sized and shaped hole to accept these fittings. Please read the instructions before embarking on the process of poking holes in your boat. See the video to understand what you will be trying to accomplish
