Default SH GX2150 mount hole size

Hey folks, wondering if someone here might be able to help.
I've ordered a new SH GX2150 that should arrive Monday, but I'm in the process of cutting a new starboard panel and would like to precut the hole to flush mount the radio. All other holes are cut.

I pulled the manual online and it just says to "use supplied template". Well, that doesn't help!

Does anyone know what the mount hole size is??

I know this is a shot in the dark, but would really like to knock it out tonight or tomorrow if possible. Thanks!

Page 139 of the owners manual gives you all the dimensions you need.

6.2" wide. X. 2.5" height an you'll need 6" deep

Thanks. I only got to page 15 that discussed flush mount and missed it in the index.
Of course, maybe that's why I only made it thru high school and 2 years of college too!
Thanks!

Thanks guys. Almost done. Need to finish a couple of holes and belt sand/router the edges.

it's not a square hole though... hopefully the radio will cover the edges. probably will. template has rounded corners

did you order a flush mount kit? it's a separate item.

Yikes! Well, I cut the hole .1" short on all sides because I was going to sand them down tomorrow. Guess I'll wait to see how the unit fits first.

Yes, ordered the FM kit as well (thanks for mentioning it though).
