Where to get portals for C26T

I am about to rebed the port lights in my Columbia C-26T. In the event that something breaks (ie frame), does anyone know where I can get of this exact size? Its a 1977 C-26T. Thanks!

Mike

I think you mean either Portholes, or Port lights (some times spelled Portlites and sometime simply called Ports). If your C26 is a Catalina, Catalina is still in business and you may be buy some parts directly from them or their OEM suppliers. If your boat is a Cal 26 things get harder indeed. That said, very often the frames on portlights are reusable. You can often replace the lenses with Lexan or Plexiglass and on operable ports the gaskets are often available as well.

Thanks Jeff. Its a Columbia C26T, vintage 1977. I've been hesitant to do this rebed job for fear of breaking something and ending up with a larger problem. I have another post in the maintenance section asking for suggestions on rebedding and/or replacing. Thanks. Mike
