Port awning???

Hope this is the correct forum to ask this. A few months ago I saw an ad for molded plastic type awnings that allow you to keep your ports open when it rains. They are just like an awning over the window in a home but are clear plastic and sloped to deflect rain. Can anyone direct me to the manufacturer(s) of these?
Thanx.

Re: Port awning???

Our boat neighbour installed a couple of these on his Beneteau 321, just using the self-stick strip they come with... seems to be holding up well.

Re: Port awning???

I replaced some ugly hand made ones the previous owner of my boat had installed with these Seaworthy ones. I am quite pleased with the result and look of them. I would not hesitate to do it again.
