Re: Fixed port light seal replacement

Tempered glass cannot be cut because the tempering puts the surface under tension and cutting that surface causes the glass to shatter. There are several options including laminated safety glass, lucite, which is strong, or plexiglass.Tempered glass could also be ordered but it will have to be custom made, and therefore expensive. Just make sure whatever you use is as strong as the original material .

Re: Fixed port light seal replacement

Thanks for the heads up, Dalober. I checked the google, and you are right. I guess the place we bought the glass from misled us. It's laminated though, which will reduce the risks if the glass is broken.

We are coastal cruisers, and the port glass is very easy to remove and install, so is there any harm in using the laminated glass? Or is tempered glass a must?
