The Diablo 6 in. Deck Plate gives you covered access to the interior of your boat. It is the replacement lid and rim for the deck plates on the Diablo Chupacabra and Adios. It can also be installed in the option hatch space on the Diablo Amigo. You need at least an 8" diameter space to install this deckplate and it requires a 6-3/8" opening in your boat. The lid is not waterproof and a dry bag should still be used. Requires 6 wellnuts or rivets, sold separately. Optional hatch bag sold separately. Choose the appropriate deck plate from the drop down menu: Screw-in hatch for model years 2014 and older or Quarter-turn for model years 2015 and newer.
|Inside Diameter:||5-5/8 in / 14.3 cm|
|Outside Diameter:||8 in / 20.3 cm|
The deck plates fit perfect and i love the quarter turn. I'll be fishing in 2 weeks and test out how water proof they are.
Product opening is only 5 inches not 6. No hardware or templet included.
Works Great as it is intended, Is not a water tight seal as there is no o-ring seal inside that compresses, Would not recommend this for any mounting or other hardware attached to the lid as it will pop off with hardly any effort (i.e. rod holders etc. even if it's the screw down lid) Other 6 in. hatches might be more suitable for this i.e. Yak Gear etc. if you insist on using this product, for the way I did, be sure to attach a tether to the inside and lid, to keep from losing the lid or attached hardware, I used them on my Amigo and found this out the hard way! LOL.... Good Luck and Paddle On!!~!!
For the Adios, this is a perfect fit from the manufacturer. There are no templates to go from if you have to use both pieces.
