    1997 h51 hatch ?

    i have a 1997 h51 17 foot with 4 hatches in the riveted over the carpet. the aluminium frame is not covered up by carpet. i was wondering if anyone has a simple solution to covering it up, other that re-carpeting the decks.

    thanks

    That's the same way my 97 H-56 is mounted. Would be hard to change.
