Now that's thinking outside the box, kudos to you!
This is my first, last and only boat build.

Now quick -

patent it,

get them made in China for a cent each and sell them to a distributor for a couple bucks a pop

Yes, Plywood is "real" wood :)

A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)

Bob,

That's a nice solution.

I tried a couple different solutions over the years. This is my latest. They are chrome cabinet knobs with white ceramic inserts, drilled and tapped out to the correct size. I used clear adhesive label stock and printed the text on it, cut out the words and stuck them on the knobs, then used many coats of clear enamel over it.
