I need to drill a 1 1/8" hole in the fiberglass of my boat to install a plug receptacle. Can I accomplish this with a standard hole saw without problems? The fiberglass is about 1/4" thick. I've read about starting the hole with the drill in reverse to prevent the gel coat from chipping. Is that my only concern? Will the hole saw cleanly cut through the fiberglass otherwise?
The instructions for the plug just say 1 1/8" hole saw, but I thought I'd ask before I butcher something.
