Inspection Ports

We offer an assortment of inspection ports and storage bags to help store small items.

Inspection Ports

Inspection ports are commonly used to gain access to the interior of a boat without compromising hull integrity. These ports include a lip that installs to a cut out in your hull with a series of screws, a lid that screws into the lip, and an o-ring seal for keeping water out. Add a storage bag for keeping small items handy. Available in 4 inch, 5 inch, and 6 inch diameters (see product listings for exact dimensions).

Have a Viking Inspection Port? Viking no longer manufacturers inspection ports, so we now offer inspection ports from RWO. When upgraded to an RWO Inspection Port you can re-use the same hole cut out in the boat, but you will need to drill new screw holes. Screw in lids on RWO inspection ports will not match threads on am existing Viking inspection port. See individual product details for more sizing information.
