Yep. Worked fine but decided to go with grandmaster in the end over the top.

Cheers Alex, just trying to work out the best way of blocking the hull without making it irreversible. Think the clear Perspex with drain bung at the stern is spot on. Trying to see if I can source 25 mm doughnut washers so I can put a penny washer either side of it with a nut and bolt through. My thinking is when put in the vent holes and done up, the washer will expand and seal the hole. Comments???

Apparently they come with different size rubber inserts to fit any diameter handlebar! Now I'm sure some handlebars must be pretty close to 25 mm.

Nice idea I just filled mine with marine plastic padding and then gelcoat over the top would be easy to remove should i want to, same with the plate on the transom.
My idea was I could see if any water got in to the hull with the Perspex window, but as yet I have not had to let any out

Granted its a new hatch but the boat has done 100nm+ and hasn't let a drop in yet.

Maybe time will tell.

The front air holes have drain bungs in them.

I think some Harley bars are near 1" ID, but finding bar ends for them might be a bit difficult.
