Stomp grate. To clean off pump intake if it gets clogged with leaves or trash.

Got a little cruising in this afternoon.

Little boat has been doing fine and so far it has worked out great for the mission with the exception of being too noisy. Ordered a roll of 1/8" closed cell foam and a roll of mass loaded vinyl thinking about lining the engine compartment panels but still have not determined if the source is the engine or if the pump is resonating the hull. May pull the impeller and shaft out and run the engine without them a little and see what it sounds like. Hopefully that would tell if it is from the engine or maybe an impeller/shaft balance issue.
