    Q:

    Can this be used on a kevlar canoe with aluminum gunwales? If so, would you mount them on the gunwales or through the kevlar material?

      A:

      I would do the aluminum not the Kevlar. Also I would prefer glue in d rings over the product you selected. Hope this helps.

      A:

      If you want to mount directly to the kevlar, I would recommend using rivets instead of the supplied screws.
      But I would try to mount them to the gunwales using either the screws or using rivets.
      Given the profile of the gunwales on my canoe, I attached wood strips that I screwed the hardware to.

      A:

      I think this could be use with your canoe just fine. However I don't think
      the screws are self tapping so you may need to use rivets or nuts and bolts
      to secure the tie downs.

      predrill holes with the perfect diameter drill so that the screws thread into the aluminum....

      A:

      I suppose you could rivet them to the hull, but I wouldn't start drilling holes in my kevlar. I would use stainless sheet metal screws to mount them to the gunwales.

      I have a royalex canoe with aluminum gunwales. I am not sure about drilling Kevlar but I drilled mine into the bottom of of my gunwales and it works great.

      A:

      It depends on how handy you are and how much of an inner lip the gunwales give you. I'd mount them on the underside of the gunwales if possible. Aluminum isn't that hard to drill. Get out your drill, put an appropriate size bit in it and, without plugging it in, see if you can put the bit tip on a part of the underside of the gunwale. If the lip doesn't protrude into the canoe very much, you won't be able to do it. I do have a friend would instead put these on the part of the gunwale that faces the opposite gunwale. It looked a little funny, but worked.
      BTW, I'm assuming your gunwales are hollow and have room to absorb the sharp part of the screw. You want to be sure to drill a hole that is smaller in diameter than the screw. (Hope I'm not insulting your intelligence here--just want to make sure I've covered the bases.)
      I would not screw into Kevlar. It's not thick or strong enough for fasteners.

    Q:

    I take it you don't need nuts or inside boat access? Just use screws with epoxy or silicone?

      A:

      The screws may work on plastic hulls, but on my fiberglass hull, I bought brass machine screws with nuts and washers. I did use silicone and did need behind the deck access.

      A:

      If the load is going to be light, such as light stuff on the deck, you
      should be ok. If there is any load you'd want a backing plate of treated
      plywood and possible through bolts.

      A:

      Correct. I drilled pilot holes first, then applied epoxy to the freshly
      drilled holes for it to soak into the grain and then installed the clips
      with screws the next day. Two years have passed and I have had no problems.

              Used on a sit on top kayak where a tie-down broke, which holds my seatback. This was a fast fix, easy to install, and now holds my seat with its attachment clips. So far durable (150 miles tested to this point).

                  My canoe needed a way to attach the ropes to hold the float bags in. Bought these and attached to the underside of gunwale. plenty strong to hold the ropes and bags in.
