portlight replacement

All the portlights in my bristol 30 are crazed. I am looking for a manufacturer that can provide openning ports to replace all my fixed ports. I cannot find any that will fit the existing rough openning on my boat...can anyone help? Large port openning is 17 1/2 x 8 1/2. Small ports are 9 1/2 x 4. Thank You!

You will not find direct replacement for the large fixed ports. For the smaller ports there are a lot of alternatives. I replaced all of my ports with opening stainless steel ports but had to fill in the openings first.

Good luck,

These guys supplied at least some of the ports for the Bristol 32 named Kestrel. Maybe they can help:
