Hanging Pictures on Bulkhead

Hello,

We'd like to hang this painting on our bulkhead. I've seen a lot of picture frames just screwed directly into the bulkhead of boats. I really like this picture frame though, it was a gift with the painting.

Does anyone know of any hardware that would sort of "cup" the painting? I'm not sure of the correct vocabulary, but I want something that would come up and around the frame on all sides to hold it securely to the bulkhead.

Let me know if I need to be more specific. I can picture it perfectly in my head but may not be describing it accurately. Many thanks!

Hello from Big Moe:

I double sticky back tape all my pictures in my main salon. Use the "Red", thick, all weather,tape. If the bulkhead is not completely level you can use a little more or less tape in each corner. I also used the wire hanger in the center just to be sure. Ill leave a picture, for your review, in my gallery: Big Moe

P.S. I needed a crowbar to get the picture off the wall when I bought a new boat!

Glue Gun

I use a glue gun -- as can be seen with Gary the Gecko. In fact, the frame above is attached with a GG. I use the GG for all pictures -- and sometimes cabling. I don't like tape over time and heat.

Agreed.... I think. If we're talking about the same tape, the plastic seperator that keeps the tape from sticking to itself on the roll is the only red part. The double sided tape itself is gray.

My DVD player has been mounted on a bulkhead for years with this stuff. I am not looking forward to ever removing it.

I (try to) keep a roll of this stuff on board. Handy to have around.

Go to a hardware store and ask for mirror mounting brackets. They are clear plastic and clamp the mirror or painting to the bulkhead. It will take 8 of them, 2 at each corner at 90 degrees to each other. One screw into the bulkhead for each bracket.

We found a better idea!!!!!!

In the harwear store look for thse picture hanging thingies. The look like velcro.
You stick both sides to the back of the picture and then onto the wall. The wall side sticks and then you can rip the velcro off to remove the picture.

The whole sticky velcro removes from the wall with a pull down tab when you have finished with it.

None of our photos have fallen off at sea

There are many types of artwork mounting hardware that is hidden and basically allows you to insert and lock down heavy paintings onto the bulkhead so that it can survive thru a storm even if someone accidentally grabs hold of it.

Take a look at this site for examples of no wire, hidden, low profile cleat hangers and security types

Picture Hang Solutions: Hooks, Hangers, Wire, Hardware

Just send them the photo and description of your art piece and explanation that it needs to be boat secure and they will give you a recommendation.

G'day Charlotte,

We have used the the Security Hangers that Pelagic posted above.



The drawing that we have hanging in Sobraon's Saloon is an rare artwork of the original Sobraon drawn by a very good friend. It has a heavy bronze and timber frame and measures 3ft x 3ft. We have had it on the bulkhead for 5 years and have been in some very big seas and it has never moved.



We purchased ours from a framing supplier and they were not expensive. The also allow you to unlock and remove the picture if you need to.

I would say exhaust your search for ways to hang anything without putting holes in your boat. The frame you have does not look heavy, so I say go with the velcro looking wall hanger Markj mentioned. I used them to hang my barometer/clock/therm. and they work very well.

Command Adhesive strips. That way you can change were things are. I even use them to mount my second chartplotter to the wall. It works great.

What ever you use, be prepared to experience a "ghost" of the covered area when you remove the painting.
The bulkhead will have faded but not the covered area.

We have a very small quilt velcroed to the bulkhead which has a heat reflective layer inside. We take it down and protect the table during meals which have hot serving dishes such as a cassserole.

Remember--Anything actually "hanging" becomes a missle when--not if (unless it's a harbor queen)--the yacht gets knocked down. Remember too that sheets of glass over a picture bolted to a bulkhead become shards of glass when they are hit by flying debris unless they are covered with clear adheasive plastic.

FWIW...
