Ladies and Gents,
Years ago, I saw a drift boat that had a plank floor that was held in place with what looked like a spring loaded, quarter turn to lock or unlock, pin, that had a vertices rectangular housing that it locked into that was attached to various ribs. The description is a little fuzzy, as is my memory, but I’m hoping someone will say, “Oh yeah, I know what he is talking about”. Anyway, the idea is to have a way to quickly remove the flooring for cleaning purposes or to retrieve something dropped through the planks.
Thanks for the help,
Thanks for the quick reply. The gadget I think I remember is more akin to something like a long version of the old Dzus fasteners that you see on smaller aircraft that was used to attach things like panels and the cowling to the airplane.
Hmm I don’t know then, I tried to use barrel bolts on my floor boards and it was a huge pain, ended up just screwing them down. There’s still a beer can and some flies under there but nothing I can’t live without
I assume the can is empty!
