Default Filling 6" speaker holes?

Just bought a Novurania that has two round 6" speakers that I don't what. I need a clever/cool way to fill the holes. Any ideas other than fiberglass and jellcoat?

round access hatch will be the best way to do it without a lot of work.

x2 - you can get some decent hatches that will not look too bad. Maybe a picture of the speakers showing their location in the boat will get some of the THT creative juices flowing.

Is that suface totally flat? Hard to tell in the pic. Access deck/inspection plate would be the easiest. I know someone that sells stainless steel ones that look real nice, but not cheap. They also come smooth, or textured. pry out, or screw-in.

You can get some 1/4" Starboard, cut a circle, route/round the edge and screw down in case the deck hatches don't fit right. Looks close to SS rail so not sure if you might have a fitup issue with the standard deck hatch.

The access holes in my outboard bracket are just round starboard type plastic screwed down with some silicone to seal off water. Simple and affective.

I did that on my prior boats. not much easier than that.

great idea...

i used 2 10" deck access covers to fill in the boomer subwoofer holes the kid had in my boat in the same location as yours...looks like it came that way....

I'd just leave the speakers, even if they aren't hooked up. Or replace with new speakers in your new sound sytem!
