LoL Hoss, Those holes have been modified. When I first got them there was a 1/2" gap at the top. Its down to a 1/4" gap. Jerry do yours fit better than this? Ill go for ride with them like this. I guess I can always remove them and enlarge the mounting holes some more. I appreciate your honesty Hoss. Keep one thing in mind I didnt make the things. lol.

One more thing. The plate is flush with the hull. No need to shim them out. I too would have expected a tighter fit but it is what it is.

i watched Rab1 modify BDNJs block-offs to fit better. he made them fit so damn perfect... they fit just like the Riva pro-block-offs now.

Right on, Ill break out the die grinder in the morning.

i have about 1/4" gap at the top, but did a real neat job with the silicone.
they fit great at the bottom and on the planing surface of the hull. Thats what counts most for me.
I may die grind the holes later and try and get a better fit for the bling bling aspect of things

another thing to try guys.... if you still have the little screw head in the middle of the block-off that holds the support bracket in place on the inside... do this:
(thank Vman for this) .... take the screw out, and get a flat top screw and countersink the hole just a tad and put the screw in. no need to ever worry about gaskets, o-rings, flat mounting, etc. because the bolt head will never be in the way again. makes life ALOT easier.

To expand on what Shibb says: I use a #8 x 1" stainless countersunk wood screw and then countersink the hole that the stock 5.5 mm head bolt sit in- use a little silicone and the head of the screw will be flush w/ the hull. Put 2 block-off screws (6mm) in the plastic backing plate before you remove the stock 5.5mm head bolt or the plates will fall into the hull.
