Buoyancy bag covers
Hi Rousey, 3759 probably had those from build, so may have some re-enforcing in that area. If you have lacing eyes then you will need to add fastenings to lace them to, rather than having it screwed down. Stuart
Yes, those would do, it is what it is secured to that you need to focus on. Give a builder/repairer a call, for the best advice on that, as you wouldn’t want it pulling out during a capsize.

Having just sanded the inside of 3650 I can tell you she has a glass batten or similar in the laminate inside to screw into. I wouldn’t recommend screwing the bags straight into the hull floor. The screws will pop out. If you had fittings for straps then these should be suitably reinforced to be the attachment points to screw into. I guess filling the holes with epoxy and fibres then re-drilling for the new fittings would be a good idea but might not be necessary
