I bought a cheapo tie-down kit for roof racks, just to vulture it's clips - because the were the shape I wanted, and they had a hole in the middle for a line. Unfortunately, they are rusting. Get something plastic or stainless. Load isn't high, so a solid plastic should be fine. Actually, scratch that - don't be a wuss like I was, and instead just go ahead & screw eyestraps into your deck right at the rails. If you want to be reall cool, add one off the middle just outside the hoop so it's anchored straight down instead of off to the side at that funny angle. Then you won't need the mast-back tensioning line either.
