port screen for Pearson 28

I have a Pearson 28, 1987 and would like to replace the screens. Does anyone know the manufacturer of the opening ports? The size is about 5x12.

port screen for Pearson 28

Paul, the NPOYA members bulletin board is a good place to look for answers to questions like yours. Think their web site may be npoya.org but it''s been a while.

Don''t overlook the fact that, at 13 yrs old & counting and with Pearson long gone, your boat is quickly moving into the orphan category re: many vendors sourced by Pearson. When I faced this question with our ''79 Pearson 424, I wanted to keep the cast aluminum ports & removeable screens, but all the metal screen material had been ripped. I ended up applying "No-See-um" screen material from Sailrite to the existing screen rims after trimming off the old screen material. This is just the kind of owner-type reburbishment that becomes called for as our boats age and earlier vendors & their products disappear. And BTW, we like the port screens far better - we pull them off when bugs aren''t a problem and get better flow, but we 100% seal out all bugs when we put them in. Vendor-supplied screens don''t usually offer this kind of screen material.
