Beautiful!

Great job. Looks fantastic.
Wondering how long it took to get the portlights after you ordered them?

Awesome....

I learn something new every time I read this forum. I really appreciate you, and the others, taking the time to post these projects in such detail.

Very nice!

It's amazing what a difference little details make. Thanks for the info and pics. Any chance you also have any pics of the light they give the interior? Might be hard to capture in a pic, but would be interesting to see.

Thanks again.

All my previous interior pictures are with the aid of a flash. Once I get the new interior cushions back on board I'll take a non-flash photo. I have not had a chance to get the cushions on board yet..

Holy smokes. Looks great.

I'm ashamed to say you spent more on your ports than I spent on my entire boat.

But add in all my repairs and refurb and I feel your pain.

That is a beautiful upgrade. NFM did a nice job making the portlights and polishing them and you another quality job installing them. You are the type of person I want to buy a boat from, big added value.
