I think that the bad comments have less to do with the quality of the actual ports and more to do with with a couple of patent infringement lawsuits brought by the owner of Beckson ports. Defending themselves, I think, impacted NFM business operations. But they told me that the suits have been dismissed in NFM favor. I love the quality of their ports.
Yes, I could make my own, there are instructions on the NFM website but I prefer not to.
They did make new templates but sold out quickly.
My question is, why given that sailors are typically a thrifty bunch, has no one returned the used templates to reclaim the $80 deposit?
Anyway if you have one, please return it so I can get covered in white polysulfide and have my coworkers ask yet again, 'What's that white stuff in your hair?'
