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.

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
