Most ports are convex and not flat, this is done to facilitate the shedding of water particularly on the deck skylights. Boatlife caulk should be used to bed the new Lexan. To remove the lexan utilize a piece of music wire and manipulate it thru the old caulk and with a pair of vise grips on each end of the wire you and an accomplice can use a sawing motion to remove the old port.

Fair Winds,

Bill
