Acrylic Retailer in the NYC Area

I'm getting ready to replace the old yellowed, crazed ports in my Alberg 35 and I'm having a hard time finding a local acrylic retailer. Anyone know of a source around NYC?

If you need new ports for a boat and are in NYC, why not go with Select Plastics in CT.
They specialize in marine ports and such and are far more knowledgeable than most other vendors....They can also cut the acrylic to the proper shape if you provide them with a template of the ports in question.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

They may speak Spanish, but they don't know how to spell "español".

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.

Thanks for the replies. I've heard good things about Select Plastics...didn't realize they were so close by. I'm going to give them a call.
