Re: Enlarging hole in hull

If you don't want to use a dremel then a block of wood would be best. But a good way of doing this is take the 1 1/8th hole saw and drill a plug out of a block of wood. When you remove the piece from inside the hole saw this should make a plug real close to a 1" plug. Might have to sand a little or wrap with tape to fit existing hole in hull. Now mount this 1" plug to a block of wood. Now when you put this into the hole to drill larger it will give a perfect center pilot hole. Greg
