Once I sussed heating it 'til the lacquer softened before cutting so it didn't spinter the edges,premade carbon fibre panels weren't too hard to cut and shape.

Eye protection, dust mask plus overalls with elasticated cuffs are essential though-the dust is 1000 times more uncomfortable than GRP dust.

I suspect people haven't enlarged your photo to see that you'd drawn three rectangles.

If you want to go fancy then red or blue. If you want to look tidy and be on the water ASAP green would be fine. (I think people assumed you wanted to know what colour plate).

I'd go with the green rectangle and put a plate on with My Callsign, MMSI etc so it doesn't look like its blanking over...

Cheers. I have someone coming over next weekend to take a look at options with regards to a plate, not my preferred option, but I think the best. I am going to try for the red option, failing that blue. I didn't realise filling the holes would be so hard - how many whites can there be? Sent from my iPhone using Rib.net

I'd go for green and leave it there when you re mount. The red would work but could be more difficult to get perfect. Blue would look wrong, you'd get away with a MMSI, radio call sign type plate over the gap as another option.

White would be a nightmare to match in. Better going for contrast.

I know I'm just an ugly American but why take them out? Is something going in the space they occupy? Even if you are not using them any fix (baring a big expensive professional job) or cover plate is not going to look as good. Hide them in plain sight. Can you get covers for them like the electronics have? Or they make blank hole fillers. They aren't int eh way or causing problems I wouldn't put too much effort in to making them go away.
