My plastic panel on my pontoon boat was old and faded. So I milled some teak to 1/4 inch and used the old panel for a template. Teak is a nice wood to work with, sands and shapes easily the wood feels almost oilly.

I left out the cigarette lighter, quit smoking one year ago.

Great job. Really looks better.

So what are you going to plug your searchlight into.

Nice Job.
Is Ok if you include the cigarette llighter charging socket..You can use it for charging your cordless power tools..
Take care and work safe.

The bottom left port is a socket for power, so I can still use that for search light and charging. I felt a sense of power to remove the cigarette lighter, cigarettes had a big hold on my life, no more.
