At first, I thought I had to have 2 plates, one permanently mounted on the outer side of the centerboard trunk and one that was permanently mounted to the pin. I decided that wasn't necessary. I read a lot of posts on the SCAMP message board and saw that often times people put in complex mounts. After thinking about it, I decided 4 screws in the 1/4" holes and into the trunk would be fine. I didn't need a complicated system here.
I did have to make small rings in the plugs to cover the slightly proud bushings. I've also picked up some 1/2" red o-rings that will need to fit in there and seal the water out. (McMaster-Carr made me buy 50 of them so I've got extra.)
