Bail Mounting the Device


If you are mounting the bracket on fiberglass with screws, it is recommended to use a countersink bit to drill a clearance counterbore through only the top gel-coat layer. This will help to avoid cracking in the gel-coat layer when the screws are tightened.

You can use the bracket to bail mount the device on a flat surface. The bail-mount bracket and hardware are included in 8x10 and 8x12 models. The bail mount is available for purchase as an accessory for the 8x16 models.
