I've been wanting to do this since the day we got the boat, and finally got around to it. The pictures pretty much speak for themselves. Man, I am soooo glad this is done. I hated having it mounted on top of the deck.

That's a big hole!
This whole project took 20 minutes start to finish. I used my jigsaw with a bimetal blade and it cut through with ease. I Had ash on the inside of the locker with the shopvac catching the dust. Remote and bezel dropped in the hole and tightend up like a glove!06 Supra 24 Gravity Games

Hope Ash had a mask on so she wasn't breathing in fiberglass dust. That stuff is nasty.Drew

Dusty I am doing that with my Kenwood 107mr remote soon. The jigsaw didn't leave a rough finish in the gel?-Mark

It cut right through it. The blade didn't want to make the curve on the bottom left, so it looks a bit jagged. But overall, it left a very clean cut.

The 107mr replaced the commander remote and it is a different shape. I thought about flush mounting my 107r and then decided against it. Being that it has an electronics display I was not sure of the life span of this item being on the back of the boat. It is marine and should last but you know how that is.
