We do. We have an excellent system. It works, is cheap and very good at sea.

Depends how permanently you want to mount the pictures… When I lived aboard some decades ago I had two 2’X3’ pictures (outside frame dimensions) I wanted to put up to break up the expanse of a rather sterile bulkhead… the frames were mahogany toned, and of course the bulkhead was the same mahogany that was popular then… finally hit on using brass screws right through the edge of the frame… in a few weeks the brass had darkened to the point your couldn’t tell it from the mahogany unless I pointed out where the were – cheesy… maybe, but it worked and never had issues with the things coming down, not to mention the apparent envy from others (at least up until I told them about my unyachtie workmanship…). I know some folks are reluctant to drill holes in their boat, but I’ll grab a drill in a second if it is what works…

ditto velcro, we did use commercial velcro, and has worked for a couple of years now, and they get bumped from time to time as they are on a companion way wall

Any suggestions as to where to get a good "starter kit" of commercial velcro? I'm looking for velcro with good shear strength (picture frames) and good tensile strength (floor boards).
Thx,
Scott

We use the 3M mounting squares. We don't change pictures often but when you do, you've got to clean off the sticky residue. Not real easy but not too difficult.

I have several "things"(ceramic turtle, Haida carvings) hung around the boat. I have no interest in taking them off so I used double sided carpet tape. You can get it at Home Depot and it works better than anything else I've ever tried. It holds a good amount of weight and sticks extremely well and as it's soft it will even do less than perfectly smooth surfaces..........m

Make sure you get a good quality level to make sure the pictures are straight.

The 3M strips in the photo in my earlier post are a velcro type fastener.

One side sticks to the wall, the other side to the picture and then the 2 sides joined and removed whenever you like.
