Inspection ports inside the cabin?

Hi everyone.

What sort of inspection ports do you use or recommend (if any?) inside the cabin, where they open into the Dorade boxes in the forward bulkhead?

Thanks!

Hi,

I used these 6" inspection ports from CLC:

I wanted them big enough that I could get my hand in for hardware manipulation, and they have worked fine.

Thanks Mark. That's the reason I was asking - I will go with 6" vents as well. Butterfly vents look nice but you can't access the dorade box, and the specified 4" ports are almost certainly too small for easy access.
