I'm about to install a driftmaster base and lantern holder to the gunwale. Anyone familiar with these boats have any guidance? It's basically a fiberglass "lip" so I can get to the underside. I'm assuming I need a washer or a back plate. Forgive me if I'm unclear - I'm new to the forum. This boat is special to me - haunted with memories as it was my father's (and his father before him) boat. They're both gone, but this old garage kept boat with the original 25hp Johnson is still kicking. Bottom line - I don't want to be the one to screw it up...I leave that to one of my sons! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
