I've used a couple of different fasteners from this company.

Toggle bolts could work, but drilling into block sometimes isn't all that strong as it shatters. Tapcons are moisture resistant, but will rust over time. You may be able to buy SS toggle bolts. The furring strips may or may not provide a good bite, depends on how well they're actually anchored. Studs work, if you can find them and get something into them near their center.

This might work to 'see' what's behind the wall.
