Hanging heavy pictures, mirrors, half models, plaques etc

Be the first to comment

What is the issue?
Heavy pictures, mirrors, half models, plaques etc require a solid fitting on a seagoing vessel. Weighty objects such as these could injure the crew should they come loose in heavy weather sailing. The obvious mounting solution is to bolt through a bulkhead and fasten them on. Yet this type of engineering is much more than is required and the bulkhead damage is less than desirable.

Why address this?
It is pleasant to personalise your vessel and make it a home from home. If this is easily achieved so much the better.

How to address this?
Attach pictures etc with a pair of hinges plus two lengths of Velcro to fasten the objects down as presented in figures 1 and 2, in the case of a picture frame.
