For a long time I have had a hole in the port side of my aft deck. The previous owner had installed a steering wheel and related hardware in this area – he must have been a very avid fisherman who wanted to steer the boat without leaving the aft deck. I had earlier installed a circular access plate where the steering wheel was, but I was waiting for inspiration on what I could do with the nearby square hole.
This is what the side wall looked like before the cover up.
So, lacking inspiration, I decided just to cover up the hole. I just cut a piece of 1/8” sign white plexi, bull nosed the edges, applied double sided tape to the back of the plexi and pressed into place.
And this is what it now looks like.
While it seems like the plexi stands out I can guarantee you that no one except an experienced boater will notice it. No one has yet commented on the hole that was there.
If you look carefully its just behind the chair on the right.
