Headliner hardware covers

I'm running the main halyard from the mast back to the cockpit of my 1985 Pearson 303. I'll have to install to blocks on padeyes to run the halyard aft and am using stainless backing plates under the cored deck. I'm looking for white plastic/fibreglass plates that I can just "pop" into a 3 or 4 inch diameter round hole I expect to cut through my headliner to expose the underside of the deck to install the backing plates. I've searched the local Hamilton's Marine and the Defender catalog to no avail.

Can anyone point me to a source of such a convenience?

Thanks !!

Try finding some HDPE plastic at the local hardware or specialty plastic shop. It's very durable, easily worked with normal woodworking tools, comes in all sorts of flavors, and is pretty inexpensive. Then you can just crack out your own, if you are even moderately handy with a chop saw or table saw and a router.

Make an underlayment of 1/2" thick HDPE as suggested by CapTim but of the same diameter as 4" Schedule 40 PVC pipe. Then, cut down a standard Schedule 40 end cap leaving a shoulder only deep enough to cover the bolts and attach it to the HDPE with a couple of No# 6 SS pan hed screws (horizontally through the cap shoulder and into the edges of the HDBE:



If you want to be really creative, use a flat face end cap and then attach a battery powered LED Lighting aray:



The foregoing are available at Home Depot, Lowes or any good hardware store.
