Take a look in this thread.

Pacific Seacraft Portlight Gaskets

Lot's of discussion on both the frame gaskets and the gaskets around the glass in there.

Port screens?

My PS 34 has holes in some of its port screens. Does anyone know where to find replacements? My ports are rectangular (ie 1992 design).

We use the bronze screens from Danicic. They work better than the plastic. Still, I wish PSC would have put a flange so the screens would seal better. There's always a little gap around the edges.

Thanks for the lead

Thanks - I'm checking on the Danicic screens. Bronze shouldn't sag as much as the plastic. I agree about the gap around the edges but even here in Maine where mosquitos are our state bird, the gap doesn't seem a problem.
