    I have an older catalina 22 with the deck mounted bow light. I am going to upgrade to the bow pulpit mounted light for better visibility. What have others done with the hole in the bow from the old light? I could leave the old inoperable light, place a cleat in its place, refiberglass (tough to get a match with my old gelcoat), an eyebolt for lashing things.... Any thoughts?

    Make it bigger and put in a deck hole plate and cover and use as a hawsepipe for anchor line.
