Adding another floor valve??`

Anyone out there added another floor valve in a more convenient place? My valve now is really far away from my stern and almost under my dry box. I was thinking about cutting a hole and adding a doughnut patch with a C7.

I'm assuming you make your own patches? Is C7 the way to go?

I cut them out, yes. 6-8" rounds.

C-7 or D-7

perfect timing - i'm considering doing this as well. a couple of additional questions ...


1) how ciritical is an interior doughnut patch for a floor? i noticed this nrs video for replacing a raft valve doesn't mention it

2) i have an nrs doughnut patch and notice the diameter is wider than the i-beams in my floor. i was thinking of cutting the patch into a narrower, rounded rectangle to avoid it spanning the i-beam seams. is this a bad idea?

this site is invaluable ... i appreciate any tips or suggestions you may have!
