Non-opening port replacement

We replaced our non-opening ports with lexan and used a Dow adhesive. We had the trim rings made out of lexan also and then painted them with Interlux gray so that they resemble the worn out and cracked original metal ones. Looks good and no more leaks (after 3 1/2 years)!

No pictures. My boyfriend and I did the work after we had the Lexan cutout by a Plastics guy.

I have owned a Hirsh 45 for 12 years and I need to do the same replacement of the long skinny ports. On a long shot I thought I might ask if your plastics guy was in Florida? I live in Stuart Fl.

Thanks

Lexan Portlights

Yes, the plastics guy is in Florida! The business is called Port Plastics and is located in Port Canaveral. We removed the old ports and he used them as a template. Worked well since it was not done in the rainy season. Good luck with your project.
