I want to mount and extra scepter foot in each side. The purpose of this is to get the wire rail more wide so it does not "take up" space on the deck.
A scepter foot is mounted with a bolt in the middle.


I must thus fasten the scepter foot by:

1) Drill a throughout hole and put a nut on the back. However, I can not get to do that due to inner shell and other accommodation.
2) or cut a tread in the piece of aluminum plate embedded in the decks approx. 2-3 cm below deck at the point where I want to place the scepter foot.
However, I do not know the thickness of the aluminum plate.

Thus, only solution 2 is in my opinion possible, but I´m in doubt if it´s OK to fasten the bolt only in the aluminum plate?

Other ideas?
