Thank you everyone for your input!

I think I may go with Gnarlydog's idea - I remember not liking pad eyes very much when in a rescue class a few weeks ago.

In the short run - I may just forgo adding intermediate mounting points for the perimeter lines, if I can use the current bow/stern toggle points (will create another thread for this to help make this information easier to find for future kayakers in this situation)

For Gnarlydog:
Any tips when using epoxy resin? did you mix cut up fiberglass with it? Is there an optimal spacing you found when drilling the two holes - Almost considering removing my current pad eyes and drilling the pad eye holes a little larger to accommodate 1/4" rope - but think they may be too close together?

Thank you everyone again!,

Bob
