Those new port-lights elevated your boat from very nice to 'Classy'!

Great improvement over the original plastic ports - and your boat is a worthwhile candidate for the updrade. I watched a guy a few years ago, replace all the plastic ports to stainless on his early '80s Endeavour . . . not a bad boat, but it seemed like gilding a sow's ear.

eherlihy will become famous soon enough
WOW! - Another great project done by a perfectionist...

After reading your installation writeup, I'm wondering if you went out of sequence for clarity.
After Setting The Trim Ring, it seems that the next step should be 3M 101 On Bolt Threads & Tef-Gel On Bolt Head. Correct?

Your writeups are awesome!!! Please keep doing them!

Thanks Ed! I write these late at night when I have some quiet office time. I'm usually tired and after proof reading every one of the 52 photos sometimes things like sequence can get away from me..

Halekai,

I couldn't say it better, your advice & website is excellent!

Although, I'm still trying to figure out what a Hawaiian is doing living in Maine, they must have to chip the ice off you in June....


I do need to add, I have the New Found Metals portlights on SOLARE and they are excellent. It was one of the improvements by the PO that sold me on her.

Actually, I was born in Alaska and have lived there and the North East my entire life. My old Catalina 36 was named Hale Kai and I used that when I registered here in 2003. I have yet to visit Hawaii though hopefully soon.. I have tried to get the mods to change my screen name to "Maine Sail" then name I use on many other forums but to no avail...

I've owned many boats ove the years and learned to stop using boat names as screen names as I go by Acoustic, Halekai36 and Maine Sail so it gets confusing depending on the forum..

Speaking of ports, if you had to re-do large main salon "windows" - what would you use as an opening port (if anything)?

Watch it pal, sailing a sow's ear is better than not sailing at all!!!

Hmmm . . . I see a photoshop opportunity here.

Jus joking xort - Endeavour is a great boat, may sail like a sow's ear, but it IS a beauty. FYI, I posted that before hearing of your new acquisition - so no correlation . . . really.
