    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.

    I cut mine with a Dremel and a drill bit. I tried a jigsaw but it bounced around a lot trying to make the cut.
