Replacement portlights / windows

I replaced the plastic ports on my Cape Dory with New Found Metals bronze ports. Luckily the old ports were a common size so there was an exact fit. Very well made, great customer service and a great website with instructions. Only thing I'm not crazy about is how the screens mount. It is really a two person job with one on the inside and one outside. Since you need to adjust the closing fit of the ports you really need to decide whether you want the screens in or out. Going back and forth would be a hassle.
