Pretty much but it's square rather than round-it just covers a round hole.It's stiffer that way.
All it needs to do is to be rigid enough not to get pushed into the flooding hull by weight of water when you stop but be flexible enough not to impede water getting out-hence the single layer as a hinge.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
