Re: Newfound Metals Stainless Ports

Questions on the teak trim rings...
Are they available from NFM?
If not where did they come from?
How thick are they? do they need to be added to the thickness calculation?

You buy them from NFM and they are 3/4" thick. You need to account for them in your overall bolt length/thickness calculation. They are used to prevent the spigot from sticking out too far on thin cabin sides.

Re: Newfound Metals Stainless Ports

I'm gearing up to replace my portlights this year (it's been on my list for 3) and I've been planning on going with New Found Metal because it looks like their price/quality is excellent.

However I have a few concerns
1) Cabin thickness. At 26' my Contessa is pretty small and I'm concerned either about the spigots sticking out too far or the teak spacer sticking out into my interior if I go with them..

2) Handles
I'm also worried about the handles which look fairly large on the inside. Are these concerns at all valid for a small boat? I don't want it to look like I jammed the wrong portlights on the boat. I've seen one other Contessa with NFM and I noted the spigots sticking out pretty far.
