It is part of the deflector shield solution. It ties into the flux capacitor. Which is then routed to the backup impulse power generator. But you done gone and done it! Ruptured for good!

a builder from around here would install a wire in the hulls to act as an antenna for a locator device. it worked because they did find a boat after it had gotten stolen

but that was a single wire in the hull not like that

I would say maybe some weird ass repair method but the cut out looks original and not like it has been repaired
your boat is a 2017 what did the manufacturer say it was?

"Kevlar" (Aramid fibers) are a very pale yellow.

Carbon fibers are dark colored, but definitely not carbon.

Are you sure it’s metal? Looks like flow media to me...

OP has been hauled away by government forces for exposing their devious plot to remotely control all our vessels

Could it possibly be to provide extra strength to an area where at least some rod holders or other high leverage add-ons are routinely added, in lieu of using backing plates? Or for a port & stbd boarding area for , ah . people of larger than average mass?

It still would not seem like a very good idea to use ferrous steel there if by any chance that is what you revealed.

Maybe there is some merit to the aerial radar detection enhancement suggestion above, ... but it seems like a bit of a stretch.

1.definitely metal
2. seems must be stainless mesh.
3. no wires attached in this area.
4. rod holder holes were cut in same spots as the boat showing in the brochure (builder somehow didnt install these 2 holders when building my boat.
5. builder gladly shipped me the missing rod holders.
6. I chose to install my self instead of hauling boat over an hour for dealer to do it.
7. I cut 4 holes for rodholders that day for a total of 6 and only the 2 closest to be inline with the rear plane of the console had the wire mesh.
8. the wire mesh is layered in the inside (bottom) layer of the gunnel not the top layer.
9. the round access port at gas filler hose is closely located to the rodholder on starboard side so reaching inside following the fill hose down under the deck there is more mesh around filler hose when it goes under deck to tank. So in essence there is a 6"wide wire mesh under deck and under the gunnels going perpendicular with the length of boat about mid ship.
10. last week or so took boat in for 100 hour service and forgot to bring the mesh question up discussion.

Tough to tell from pic-but it doesn't look like SS.
What color is it?

Based on the location in the composite "sandwich" I still say it is flow media (that somehow was missed during processing. Flow media should be removed after infusion).

Anyway-why not call the Mfr and ask? Seems like you already have a good relationship with them...

Excess filler laying around the shop.
At least you didn’t drill into the used underwear!

HA! Actually used a pair of underwear, 'left in the car' somehow, to fill a rusted out hole around the taillight of a '66 Chevelle back in the 80s, then bondo!

how did you find out?
I put a squirt of gas in rod holder last week.
Cant believe I did that. ESPECIALLY after reading about someone else doing that on THT
a while back.
