Fixed Portlights for Laguna 26
 
Does anyone know where I can get replacement fixed portlights for a Laguna 26? Is there a custom portlight manufacturer out there?

Just the glass, or the whole frame?

I'd like to replace the frames and the glass. The frames are plastic flange type frames that press through from the outside

Custom made will be very expensive.

Maybe find some used, that are just a little bigger than yours, and cut a new hole.

I had custom port lights made for my Ericson a few years back by Bomon(not Bomar). They cost about $300 each.

I highly recommend them.

Tim,

What was that process like? Did you template them, send out the old ones or did they have a catalog of the dimensions for various boats/builders?

Joe, I created templates for them. I worked with Alain who was very particular about getting me a perfect product. Great folks to work with.
