Weed hatch anti-cavitation plate?

Hi.
I just bought a 2008 Piper shell narrowboat. I'm surprised to find the weed hatch has just a lid, and no lower anti-cavitation plate. I'm wondering if this is normal, whether other Piper owners have the same, and whether I should get the lid modified to include an anti-cavitation plate. Any insight and recommendations would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Dave
