    I remember seeing an article about glassing in a bracket, I'll see if I can find a link. Hate seeing holes drilled through bottom.

    Did your boat not have side tanks before? Tanks in my Ultra through bolt from the bottom through the hull. I think the are 3/8" tapered and counter sunk so they're flush on the bottom. Not big on through bolting through the hull but other than glassing in mount plates, I don't think you have many options.

    My swtd has the standard stainless brackets. It's a pain in the ass to get to the back bolt. I'm either gonna tack the nut to the bracket or make some tapped aluminum bases kinda like a ride plate cradle.

    Sam sent me some pictures awhile back that have an aluminum "h" bar with studs then glassed in the boat. That link to scjb shows a hot boat article with the same brackets. That's what I had in mind the whole time. I was curious if I could use wood as an alternative but I have no extra room

    Mine has wooden blocks glassed to the floor, with the tank brackets mounted to the wooden blocks.

    In my last boat I glassed 2 bulkheads in on each side, with a round hole in each. I put carpet on each side of the bulkhead and that in conjunction with the fill tube held them (TANKS) pretty snug. Worked out well.

    Drill holes in the bottom or the inside of the tunnel

    I have hard time drilling holes in the bottom of boats, so I would glass the brackets in, wood could be added

    The strap connecting the two pads together is unnecessary but it doesn't hurt. It does help keep things lined up while grassing the mounts to the floor.
