Anchor locker door

I borrowed this mod from Serge Lady V and it is an improvement from my previous method of getting rode to pass through the anchor locker door. The old method was to simply cut or grind out a hole for the rode to pass through. Now we have a larger section cut out and have it covered by a stainless steel vent cover. I think this looks much better.

The vent cover is from West Marine. Note that the original screw holes didn't work because of how the anchor locker door is constructed so I drilled new holes farther back on the vent cover.
