Portlight Screens
Does anyone know of a good source for portlight screens? I'm looking for a 5" x 12" screen with a relatively flat edge/border. Not surprisingly, I haven't found anything that quite resembles the OEM part for my 1978 Irwin.

This might sound silly, but my best screens came from a Michaels crafts store. They were selling at 50 cents for square foot pieces and I easily cut the plastic screens down to my desired size. They were actually an embroidery matrix that is used for that or needlepoint,- I don't know their actual marketed function, but they excelled as my screens; however the mesh size is only good for flies and mosquitos and not for gnats. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

West marine sells screens that fit many ports.

Try this:

Good luck,

For the price of that 1 screen (5 by 12) I bought a camping screen at decks sporting goods that fits over my hatch and the 2 ports. It is meant to be suspended over your whole body about 2 feet above your so it comes with some line that I tie to the toe rail for the main hatch and I use clothes line clips on the outside of the ports. I have another one that goes over the gang way
