resealing "Old style" Lewmar Portlights

Are you sure the drips are coming from behind the frame and not due to worn out gaskets? It is not a majorly difficult job to remove a port light, just that there is increased odds that you can damage the port light in your attempt to free it from the bonds of caulk that really wants to keep it attached. Putty knives also tend to scratch the gelcoat so use with care.
