Re: CS 36T new ports installed

Its amazing how much opening ports add to airflow, and these are beautiful, I wouldn't trade my plastic ones that don't leak for anything less than this.

Thanks Al, out of eight original ports four were opening and four were non, I was glad to go with all opening, I was lucky that only one had developed a leak and it was not from the frame or original butyl sealant, it was due to the internal hinges showing stress cracks which meant I couldn't adjust the pressure any more on the gasket without fear of the hinge breaking.

Thanks RW, yes installed myself, Maine Sail has a very nice instructional piece on the install as well as the New Found Metals web site, there are a little more expensive but when you compare them to the alternatives which do not come close in either appearance, function, or longevity it's a no brainer! See the two links below as referenced above.

Which model / size did you you?
Have a CS 36 T and have thought about changing ports, saw the video and slowly have to move to the next step.
