Opening Port/Window Identification help?

When I went to the boat this weekend, I saw signs of water intrusion. I rebedded the chainplates a few weekends ago, and while I'm not 100% convinced that I did everything perfectly, I tend to think that the water is probably coming from somewhere else. There are three opening ports on either side of the boat, and one is almost directly above the area where I'm seeing water. I'd bet that the gaskets haven't been replaced since the ports were installed, so I'm inclined to order new ones (and new screens since many of the current ones are torn). To that end, I need help identifying the ports. I know they are Beckson, and are the Rain Drain style (see Opening Ports by Beckson). But I can't tell whether these are the 410, 414, or 512's. Can anyone help positively ID them? I'd like to order the gaskets and screens so I have them for my next trip to the boat.





Thanks in advance for any help!

Those are Beckson Ports as you thought. Parts are easily available for them. Beckson's website has everything that you need to measure them.

If I had to guess I'd say they are 5x12.

The nice thing is that gaskets are cheap.

Jim,

I had a similar situation and I started from the bottom up..Genoa tracks, chainplates, window gaskets... The leak persisted and ended up coming from the handrails. Lesson learned for me, best to start from the top down and eliminate sources. Just a thought.
