Rubber Rain Hood for Opening Port

Has anyone seen rain hoods for port holes that are made out of rubber? I have a port that I want to use as a vent but need to keep rain from coming in. It's also located where you would hit it with your foot - ALOT.

This one appears to be made from plastic.

Re: Rubber Rain Hood for Opening Port

As I recall, the Beckson ones used to be made of soft vinyl. It doesn't say what they are made of on the website. I just checked their catalog and it didn't say either. You might send them an email and ask. If they are what you need, I'd love the chance to quote you on them.

I did. I'll let you know what they say. I'd still appreciate any other suggestions.

Re: Rubber Rain Hood for Opening Port

Seaworthy’s “PortVisor” rain shields are made of polycarbonate (rigid mat’l).

So are Beckson's. I'll have to see if someone locally can made me one or come up with a new idea to ventilate this area.

Thank you for the help
