Al,
thanks for the reply, certified sling sells only the "slings'.I'm looking for the hardware that connects to the boat as well as some suggestions or maybe others experience with a 42 fountain.

hey,usually if your boat isnt designed with the hardware built in,there is no way without putting twin eyes about half way down the deck through bolted all the way down to the strigers,usually you get certified to make short slings to your rear thru transom eyes,and then have them design a sling that cradles your bow,same way a marina would do it.....you need to make sure your rear eyes are excessively secure making sure there pulling on the hull and stringers preferably,and then there should be a mark point that the factory has designated lifting point about 2/3 up towards the bow.......you should have someone out there that can build tie plates for the rear eyes.....do not use them if there on the top of your transom,or the deck only.....or just have them build two cradle slings.....
