A Perfectly Centered Hole

By using the pilot hole you made the original circle with you will automatically have a perfectly centered hole in the backing plate.

Be sure to use a hole saw as close to the OD size of the thru-hull as is humanly possible. There should be very little room between the threads and the fiberglass.

Please be aware that working with G-10 or even GPO-3 board is like working with steel. It eats tools for lunch.
