Portlights 5x12 - Price Reduced! + Photos

Although our portlights were brand-new when we bought our boat in 2007, they were not installed correctly. We had a little windfall and elected to replace them with bronze.

Now we have 8 portlights available. They are 5x12 Beckson Rain Drain Opening Portlights with screens. One of them is shown below.




We've cleaned this one up, but the other 7 still have quite a bit of white silicone on the frames. Other than cleanup, they are in excellent condition, with no damage to the screens, and the gaskets seal perfectly.

We're asking $50 for each one, or $350 for all 8, plus shipping from North Carolina. (cost new is $145 per portlight)

Please send a PM or phone us at (252) 732-0597.
Thanks,
Meps 'n' Barry

I can't figure out how to edit or delete my original ad -- but as of May 12, 2009, the Beckson portlights have been sold.
Thanks,
Meps

p.s. We got our 5x12 bronze ports from New Found Metals in Port Townsend, Washington. They also make stainless ones.
