There is an increasing effort by high end boat builders to eliminate visible fasteners for a more aesthetically pleasing "clean" look on new boat builds. There are ways to accomplish this (designing products with interior (hidden) mounting points, using rear mounting studs, etc.) , however these options add cost and complicate installations. An alternative solution is utilizing color matched powder coated fasteners. While not completely hidden, powder coated fasteners blend in with the product much better and provide a significant aesthetic improvement with almost no increase in cost and no change in installation method.
