Allanbc I have a Pearson 365. I plan on replacing my port lights with ones from New Found Metals. They aren't cheap but they are really nice. The PO replace the two larger portlights with NFMs. Now all I need to do it replace all five of the smaller one.

I have no suggestions on your odd shaped windows.

georgefmys Since you are in Annapolis,you might talk to Keith at Maritime Platics in Eastport .They can help you source what you need-or fabricate something custom if that's what you will need.Ask them to show their photo album of completed work,it's impressive! [a satisfied customer]

dbruce85 This may be a good place ot start. I have not used either of the suppliers of ports, but I am sure other readers have.
Good Luck

New Portlights for a PEarson 30

Of the many projects planned for this winter I am thinking of replacing the 4 small fixed lights with new portlights. This is fairly straight forward. I am wondering what brands people like. I am debating what to do with the large, oddly shaped ports in the main cabin. I think I might like having more ventilation in the cabin than maintaining the original look of the boat. Has anyone tackled replacing large lights like these with multiple smaller port lights? I would love to put one large one on each side, but the light follow the curve of the cabintop walls so I cannot do that. Does anyone know of a company that makes reasonable priced custom portlights?

Any advice or thoughts on this subject would be much appreciated.
