Opening / Fixed Ports on CS36T
I am halfway through changing all of the ports on my 1981 CS36T.
Four were opening: Galley, Head, Chart Table and Over Hanging Locker - fore and aft on both sides. The four middle ports (over the settee) were same size but fixed.
All 8 will be opening when completed this spring.
Ventilation was poor and should be a lot better. It takes about 2 hours per port to change. I am doing them one at a time to make sure each one is secure before going on to the next.
I am using Beckson replacement ports. The new ones are almost identical to the originals and have drain spouts to eliminate the pooled water that used to pour in when the original port was opened. Make sure to use the proper adhesive (fibreglass to plastic) or they will not adhere properly.
