Here are some pictures of the access panels I incorporated into my aft deck restoration. The two square panels can be removed with eight screws to gain access the port and starboard fuel fills and hoses. The two round deck plates can be removed to gain access to the port and starboard cleats and the two forced air blower hoses to vent/cowl connections.

Buttoning everything up today! Everything is finished except for the actual deck. Lots of work below deck completed. Here are some pictures above deck. Installed the twelve LED deck lights around the perimeter as well as the two round deck plates. Both panels have been installed, one for the dual 30 amp shore power outlets and the other for the cable/phone jack. I left space on the cable/phone jack panel to install an exterior GFCI outlet down the road (convenient having a 120 volts outlet available on the aft deck). Lastly note that I took all of the original aluminum trim to the sandblaster and then on to the powder coater where I had it all coated semi-gloss black to match my rear sliding doors.
