Recessed Starter Switch or Stop-Cable Panel

Does anyone have an idea on where to find recessed switch panels that are smaller than the ones sold by SSi (picture attached). I have one on my boat that is about 4" wide and tapered front to back and want to find another like it. I understand that this one was originally used to hold a stop cable assembly. THANKS!.[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Pete/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]

I don't think I've seen one anywhere but if you can't find one it would be fairly simple to make up from some plywood and epoxy filler. That way you could make it any shape or size you wanted.

Assuming you have the materials, it would take an hour or less to get the ply cut on a table saw and frame it. Then figure an hour for the first coat of epoxy and filler to round out the inside corners. Then a second hour to sand the inside and apply a second coat of epoxy or two part paint. Let it harden and she's ready to install. You could even pre-drill the holes and seal them with epoxy before the installation, it would never rot then.
