I'm also going to do this job on my P30. I have the Catalina kit in my possession and it all looks like the right stuff.
Hopefully I'll get up the nerve to start this soon.

Hi Jeff,
I haven't gotten there yet - have been engrossed with installing two new thru-hulls with ball valves and rebuilding under the vberth to prep for a holding tank ( boats never had one ).

It looks lit might get pushed off till next year. I did come across a detailed how-to of it though:

I was considering replacing my portlights on my P30 later this season. Did you ever replace yours? If so, how did it go?

gravy26 Haven't done it yet - this winter. It'll be part of a deck paint job.

Hey Mike,

Was curious if the kit worked on your 1973 P30. I have a 1974 P30 & wanted to get the kit for my windows.

One last question - What did you use to polish the port trim?
Mine is aluminum - not sure if a vigorous polish will ruin the coating..

Already There
Re: Fixed port light seal replacement

Yes, That is the kit I bought. Really has plenty of materials. Use caution taking the frames apart, then have two people to put them back together as the sealer will get all over your hands and you can't squeeze the frames together tight enough to replace the screws without someone holding the tension on it. A long woodworking/furniture clamp also comes in handy.
