We have two deck plates over our lazarette. Each one is mounted in a deck hatch. They have interchangeable inserts: a flat plate for when we're using the boat and low scoop vents for when the boat is in its slip. I painted the scoop vents high visibility yellow to remind us not to kick or step on them. I also stuffed hardware cloth inside each vent to keep mice/rats from entering the boat through them.

The starboard deck plate was there already to serve as the access hole for the emergency tiller. I simply added a second one in the port hatch. The deckplates and cowl inserts we used are made by Beckson. Photo is the deck fitting with the cowl insert installed. We used the higher vent.
