Re: Enlarging hole for screw-out deck plate? File? Dremel?

Not necessary to seal under the heads of the screws. Just a bead under the flange. DO NOT USE 5200!

Re: Life Jackets

Re: Enlarging hole for screw-out deck plate? File? Dremel?

A dremel with a drum sanding bit will work fine. Installing a deck plate in a bare hole, however, may not be the look you want. Consider buying a deck plate size you want with a ring. WEST MARINE...

Re: Indy Canvas Charleston, SC Unprofessional Unresponsive
