David, if it has crazed it probably is plastic, not glass. But if the portlight can be removed, any good glazier should be able to cut a replacement piece of glazing for you. Tempered glass or case-hardened glass, they will have different options for you depending on the shop's own resources. Might be simpler to just replace it with 1/4" plexiglass (a UV-resistant and scratch-resistant grade) and have the shop cut a half dozen pieces for you, swap them out and polish or replace as need be. Plain plexi is fairly cheap and with some elbow grease and heavy plexi polish (scratch remover) you might find it easier than getting a better material.
