Oday fix up question

We are new owners of a 31 Oday. ( 86 model ) I have been able to find most of the things that I need so far but on this one im not even close. In the cabin I have a bunch of bolt holes exposed ( like where the winch is attached ). On some places they are covered by a plastic cover, sure would like to have some for the ones that are missing. I have searched for them by several names ( bolt cover, hole cover, hole cover plastic..... etc ). Can anyone help??

Thanks

Rick & Donna

Not sure what you are describing here R&D....

Any chance we could get a picture?

Sounds like exposed fasteners in the overhead (for winches, cleats, turning blocks etc)

You may be able to find some covers, esp if some areas of the boat already have them.. failing that you can dress things up some by adding polished acorn nuts in the visible areas or by fabricating something yourself.

Silicone Caps

My O'Day 34 has caps over screws in the headliner from the headsail track. They look something like the ones from this web site: Silicone Tube Caps

The caps are called knock-out plugs and the nylon/plastic ones used in the O'day can be found at Grainger

Hardware > Supplies > Hole Plugs > Hole Plug,Hole D 1 In,Wh,PK 25 : Grainger Industrial Supply


They come with 25 plugs per bag. Very cheap way to make an old boat look a bit like she did new
