Need deckplate help.

Lke the title says I need some help with making the deckplate hole in/around san diego.
So does anyone have a 3inch holesaw I can borrow or come by and use?
Also if anyone knows of a good muffler shop that fabs up motorcycle exhuast let me know.

You can do it with a jig saw or rotozip. We install 100's of them on kayaks and such every year, nothing different about this.

Rotozip is a router. Any jigsaw blade should cut.

3" DP no, 4" I stock. if that fits ill pop one on the box for you for 20.00 total, just have to bring air box to my work.

A 4" plate is 6" over all OD. Never seen much for 3", you could try SD Marine Exchange, theyd be my best bet.
