I'm planning on making new combing pads, for my boat. My question is what would be a good method for attaching the pads, to the boat? It's an aluminum boat, and I don't want to use a backerboard.

I think you have a few options:

Use adhesive Snads on the aluminum and then attach snap sockets to the backs of the combing pads.

Use an Awning Track attached to the aluminum and then install awning rope along the tops of the combing pads and hang them in this manner.

Velcro circles but I think this is too weak.

Thank you. Do you carry the snap sockets and adhesive snads?

We do. Get the large diameter ones if possible. The flexible ones are best for curved surfaces. Be sure to use a Primer 94 prior to sticking:

For the cushion side you need a button and socket for each attachment point. There are several options:
