Re: Cockpit Mounted Speaker Covers

I have the same problem. The cockpit was full to overflowing with snow when I got back from Christmas vacation. We had had quite a storm. I hadn't covered the boat yet! Shoveling it out I struck one of my speaker grills. The round grill has horizontal plastic "strips" and I broke a couple. I have made a "temporary" repair using automotive striping tape. I found some the same width as the white plastic grill bars. A carefully trimmed double layer is almost an invisible repair. It is tough tape. I use it for draft marks on my racing canoes and it has never come off. We will see. I will look for replacement grills but the urgency of having broken plastic grills in the cockpit is gone.
