Replumbing the fill and vent lines over the winter. I'm looking for strong strap with screw holes that I can screw into the fiberglass to hold it up. Its a 1-1/2" and an 1" line together. I was thinking Cushion P-Clips but can't find them anywhere. Any suggestions?

If the metal in those isn't stainless it is a waste of effort.

Large plastic wire ties like the ones the phone or power co.'s use will work just fine at 1/2 the cost.

Make sure they are of good quality, some of those plastics get real brittle in the elements after awhile.

True, but only when exposed to UV rays, tucked up under a gunnel or below decks they are the way to go.

Some I got from Sears for real cheap got all brittle in my bilge. I had to redo all the ones I did when I got my boat five-six years ago. Under my console they were fine...but I still redid em all.Frown
Maybe they were left out somewhere before I bought em...
