In an earlier post "Help with Perimeter Lines - Pics inside " http://www.paddling.net/message/showThread.html?fid=advice&tid=1602978 I had a few questions answered about installing perimeter lines.
After reading the helpful posts, I think I am ready to proceed. However, I would like to avoid pad eyes if possible (and I just bought a bunch of them and an uber pop rivet gun as well :-/) and minimize the number of holes I need to drill into the boat.
Looking at the bow & stern, it looks like the further most ends are epoxy filled?
If so, I was thinking, it would be ideal, if I could run the furthest most bow and stern ends of the perimeter lines through the current bow & stern toggle locations. I would then drill a hole through the epoxy filled areas and relocate the toggle points to those locations?
In this way I would really only need to drill two holes (albiet larger holes), and the deck would stay mostly snag free. If this seems like a sound idea, would it be best to drill at option #1 or option #2?
Thank you in advance again!,

I have no balance problems with my toggle line being one sided only since they are opposed (port side on bow, starboard on stern) and carrying the kayak balances them out.
