Beckson Pry-Out Deck Plates are water tight circular hatches that require prying to open. These hatches are excellent for marine applications, where access to voids is occasionally required. The circular hatch cover uses an extra heavy o-ring seal to assure watertight integrity. These hatches press in place to secure and pry out with an implement such as a screwdriver to remove. Hatch Plates are offered in white, neutral and clear. Clear models allow easy observation of gauges or visual inspection areas below. Two sizes are available, 6 inch and 7-5/8 inch ID. Hatch surfaces come in three varieties: smooth, non-skid and diamond textured.

What is the rough-in dimension for the 7 5/8" cover?
OD 10", HOLE IS 8 3/8" ID IS 7 5/8"
I don't know, as I have sold the boat.
Don't recall, but the packaging will tell you. I just traced the hole from the bezel.
can these install on a slightly curved deck ?
They must sit flat. If they are installed on a curved surfacethey don't close and seal up correctly.
I put rhem on flat deck, however there was a little give in the frame. I sealedmine also, so I guess and I mean I am guessing here, they might work with a sealing compound. Sorry I can not be more help.
what is the outside width of the plate ?
width as in thickness? 1/4" at lipwidth as in overall diameter? 8"
Yikes! Sorry I can't help. I sold the boat. It was a great product though!
Is there anything on the back of the ring to make it water tight or is this to be installed with silicone?
There is a rubber gasket so no silicon is needed for the removable part of the plate. The base however needs to be sealed to the deck. Hope this helps.
Install with some sort of sealant. The back, IIRC, has shallow rings to hold the sealant.
No, there is nothing to make it watertight. I would advise using 3M 4200.
I don't think there was a rubber seal on the back side. Plan on silicon, just to be safe. More critical is how flat the surface. Mr transoms had a very slight curve to it, so I had to make sure I did not tighten flush to deck. In that case you might fill the gap with silicon. It's more important to ensure the plate sits flat in the back plate.
I have a 1982 mako 17.5 no standard 8" deck plates fit due to the beveled design of the oem plate. The holes line up perfect but the opening in the deck is appx 1/8 inch too small. Will this fit?
Anytime you have to replace "anything" you can expect to do some modifications. If I understand the question, smaller in this case is a good thing. Any fiberglass "hole" is going to be irregular so take a file or some 60 grit sandpaper and work the edge of the hole until the plate assembly will drop in. Hope this helps.
Am I measuring the interior diameter or exterior?
I wanted to replace an old existing plate, and measured the inside diameter, which was 6", and I presuming that these plates had std sizes, but they don't. Here's the story fyi - The old plate was vertically mounted and had an elec switch in the center of it that I had removed, so I wanted to replace the plate with the hole with a new plate. I measured the ID and ordered a new plate that I presumed would be the same size (again, I thought these were std sizes). I found that it was 1/8 inch larger that the plate I was removing, so I could not retrofit the new plate into the old frame cutout, or the new frame into the old cutout space. Ended up buying a plastic plug and using 3M 5200 to seal it into the hole in the old plate....probably what I should have done in the first place.
deck plate dimensions
I was replacing a deck plate on my Searay I measured the existing deck hatch and the diameter was 6 inches. Order the 6 inch deck hatch and received a deck hatch with an opening of 6 inches but the hatch is actually over 7 inches in diameter it does not fit my application.
Used to access fuel sender unit below well,Perfect for this and other less used aplications.
