Inner Hull radio tray cover sheet protection

I cant recall where I ran across this suggestion, it wasnt my original idea, but I'll sure use it on my boat.

When I changed the Sail Sheets from single haul to double haul, the risk of the sheet(s) getting fouled inside the hull with radio gear/mounts increased.

I took a piece of lexan I had lying around and cut to fit over the radio tray. Used a small piece of velcro hook/loop to hold in place.

Worked perfect. Now I lowered the risk of fouling the sheets inside the hull. This smooth lexan cover prevents the sheets from falling into openings in the radio tray, or fouling with the battery holder or wiring.

Easy to remove for battery service or removing the receiver.
