There are a few good boatyards in the area which could certainly work on your ports for you.
You didn't mention if you wanted a mobile service or if you could take your boat to a yard.
Are they opening ports?
Do they need to be removed from the boat and resealed?
What kind of boat?

Salty Dog,

What the heck is a portal, I think this is more of a web term than a boat word.?

Here's the dictionary quotes: "A doorway, entrance, or gate, especially one that is large and imposing." Do you mean "porthole"?

I have used Select Plastics.

Select Plastics, in Norwalk CT is one of the best in the business. Even Lewmar uses them for repair work. Give them a call, they are very helpful, and the shipping charges are worth it, their quality of work is OUTSTANDING. They also travel to most of the major shows, so you might see them there as well. They completely re-glazed and re-gasketed both my Lewmar Ocean Series hatches and they replicated the long cabin portlights on my boat.

Porthole refurbishment

Try Florida Rigging and Hydraulic in Riviera Beach. They are an authorized Lewmar repair facility. They rebuilt an Ocean 60 hatch cover for me. Did a great job. About 2 week turnaround. They can fabricate any replacement porthole and have spare parts such as handles and hatch hinge kits.
