ugly ports

Did that, tremendous amount of work. Replaced ten portlights, six 7x15''s and four 5x12''s. You will have trouble finding a perfect fit so will either have to glass in or cut out. I had to glass new plywood core, not just for the drain cutouts but all around. And they do not drain, if you have an angled cabinside then the water will lie in the portlight. Mine do not leak, they look nice, and they make for a much stronger cabin. But you better be careful when opening. Mine are NFM''s(www.newfoundmetals.com)
