    I just bought two flush mount cleats from bass pro for my ranger banshee. I can put the one off center on the front deck, but don't know where I should put the cleat on the rear deck. There is only room right behind the hatch that is going to be very hard to tighten the nuts down on and looks a little weird, but probably doable. Or I can put it on the rear hatch. Is that a bad idea? My boat may be roped up in storm, so I wasn't sure of cleat on the hatch would be a weak point that can lead to something breaking.

    Or any other suggestions?

    I don't think the hatch idea is a good one as you've already suspected.
