Thanks for those specs, Parks! I think they'll work just fine. Order placed for 2 cleats.

The glass is so ridiculously thick that fender washers will more than do the job. You just have to figure out how to get them in place.
Thanks for the tip, ghost! I'll keep that method in mind if I need it.

Next I'll be stripping, repairing and varnishing the split caprail on the port side. Each cleat pop caused significant damage to the affixed caprail. When I'm done, these cleats will hopefully be the last thing to ever pop off this boat!
My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al
