Portlight screens

I own a 2006 Caliber 40 LRC. The portlight screens need new gaskets. One screen is missing and needs to be replaced.
Anyone out there know where I can get parts?

Re: Portlight screens

If you post a close up of one someone will probably be able to identify the manufacturer, which will be the first step in finding parts.

You need to identify the manufacturer of the portlights. If there are no visible markings, take photos and try to match them to photos in catalogs or on the Internet.

Then, contact the manufacturer.

My portlight screes are cardboard with screen glued on so when I damaged one, I pulled the damaged screen off, bought new screen at the home center and glued it on. If yours are like mine, you should be able to make a replacement yourself.

Re: Portlight screens

I sent an email to George McCreary - Caliber Brokers. Didn't get a reply. Have been in touch with Downwind Marine. Sent him pictures and measurements. Haven't heard back from him. There is no manufacturer's label on any of the portllights. I'm looking for the next step

Re: Portlight screens

I gave up trying the screens. When I changed the "O" ring around the glass I cut a screen from Fiberglass screening from hardware @ $10. Mounted it in the opening then installed the "O" ring. Now I have permeate screens in all ports and don't have to install and remove every time I open port.
