I had a look at that website. the 5" round port, in bronze, looks about right.
I take it that the 5" is the hole in the middle.
In a big sea, with the washboards in, we ask the helmsman on watch to sing. You can't see him, so we have to hear him so we know he hasn't fallen in the drink.
Although I sing absloutely beautifully... Bryan Ferry would not get a look-in.... the first mate's singing is shocking, and a portlight would be much cheaper than a shrink.

What finish? Try Gibo from Europe. They have USA dealers.

portlight bulkhead thickness...
I own a Union 36 and I wanted to fit a portlight in the bulkhead just to the right of the companionway, looking aft, as for this similar boat (Tayana 37)....
The problem is the bulkhead thickness.... close to 45 mm.... no-one seems to make a portlight that will cope with such a thick bulkhead.
I have tried a while back, but could not find one.
