Re: Enlarging hole in hull

I echo the dremel recommendation. Have done this many times. Trace the circle and dremel out to the trace. A dremel is an incredibly precise tool. Far more precise, and less risky, than a hole saw IMO. I use hole saws to start fresh, but to just enlarge, I'd have this hole perfect in just a couple minutes. Easy peasy.

Like so much, it's really just a question of what makes you comfortable, and how you are willing to fail!
