    the deck plates measure 10" OD and 8" ID...the armstrong folks said this was the old size and that they had some availabel but this size is not the typical.

    Though everyone should know it is not a current size and the Armstrong folks were very nice.

              I just replaced my old west marine deck plate. It was leaking into my bilge for the longest time. I ordered the 10", cut the new hole and it works like a champ. No more water. I could not be happier.

                    i just cut out my old piehole for my bilge with the intention of

                    replacing it with a 10x20 armstrong. the underside of my deck is

                    uneven so i had to grind away to enable the armstrong's clamp arms to fit. then there was the problem with the camber of the deck. i started to sand away some more but am taking a few days to ponder the situation before i proceed. i am tired of having a wet bilge and limited access. unless i can get some inspiration/advice i may have to purchase a bomar, tempress, or t-h hatch to fit. i will post some pics later tonight. joe

                        deck plates arrived...at first I thought 'how the hell are these going to work'...but after a dose of sanity, I took the plates over to the boat to test them out. They fit correctly and now I realize why some folks were saying that they struggled to install them flush to the deck. I really don't care because of where they are located as long as they don't leak!

                        So as soon as we see some sunshine here on the east coast, I'll remove the old plates, fill in some holes, and screw down the new plates (oopps, no metal screws, just a turn of the knob!)
