    Why be mad? If it can help someone else with their project, then its serves a good purpose. I did look at some similar products but none were compatible with the flat/flip style weatherproof outlet cover I wanted to use. The existing oem outlet cover and the 2 new one I used are a center screw mount (between the two doors) and the cover is molded and recessed so the outlet fits into the cover for a tight weatherproof fit. The one you show would not work either due to the mounting set up.

    i was thinking the same thing David and found a heavy stainless steel mixing bowl that I just about bought to use as a sink by drilling a hole in the bottom and fixing a drain. But haven't had the guts to try it yet.

    didn't want yo uto be upset about 2 holes if you could have gotten away with one. I think it looks smooth though



    I know i have seen what you are talking about but couldn't find them online for a picture. they do sell the same type of covers you have but with one larger door that is water tight. i have one for an outdoor outlet at my house that i bought last year.

    Here it is all complete and ready for first spring use. The plumbing was easy and I reused the same drain hose. I had to buy a new drain from WM though. The adhesive caulk from WM made a bit of a mess but cleaned up pretty easy.

    The new hot water line going through the floor along side of the existing cold water line and it was run on top of the fuel tank back to the er. I sealed the gap with great stuff spray foam.

    Here it is all put back together.

    The lighting here is from the 2 new Lumitec Shadow lights installed in the arch. The lights are on full bright but can be dimmed on white and they also switch to red and blue

    Here they are installed. They mount flush to the arch. I also put 2 in as courtesy lights.

    Here is a better one of the TV in the home position. Its articulating mount allows it to move so it can be moved around and locked in place to be viewed from every where above deck.

    Thanks for looking and for all the nice comments.

    I like those lumitec shadow lights. Did they fit where the factory courtesy cockpit light were or did you have to modify the opening? Are you happy with them?

    Yes, they fit right in the existing holes in the arch and the courtesy light locations. The arch was a flat surface and quick install. The courtesy light surface is slightly rounded and can not be screwed down flush completely on all sides or it will crack...dont ask me how I know. I just screwed two of the screws down tight and then only snugged down the third side and filled the small gap with white silicone caulk. So far, im really happy with them.

    WOW. Really nice job!! I wanted to put SS sink in OldSkool but I don't have a sink, heck I don't have a galley or head. I must put the admiral back out searching for an upgrade. :smt024

    I did the same thing and wrote a polite email to the Lumitec folks and they sent me a replacement at no charge. I also found some round glass on the Internet, a Walmart glass-etching kit and some glue that withstands the 125 degree temp I measured on the light so I can repair the one I broke.
