Peek A Booo Porthole shutters

We have a 2006 Caliber 40LRC. When the boat was new we outfitted her with Peek A Boo shutters from Zarcor. These privacy screens have two main parts that slide to open and give light and slide to close for night time privacy. They are simple to put on and remove for cleaning.

About 3 years ago The "connector pieces" that allow the two main parts to open and close began to fail. My guess is the sun. I called Terry at Zarcor. He sent a bunch of the needed pieces at no cost. I am having problems with a few of the shutters now and I called Terry again. And, once again, he is sending out a bunch of the connectors at no charge.

I believe when a company is that good to stand behind their product like this they deserve a recognition.

Thank you Terry
Thank you Zarcor

Peek A Booo Porthole shutters

I have used Peek-a-Boos and have a companionway door from Zarcor. They are a fine company and I am glad to hear they stand behind their products. I have had my Peek-a-Boos for 11 seasons on all my fixed port lites and have them on my overhead hatches too. Excellant products! They are so good, I have not had a breakdown on any of their components.

He took care of us in the same professional way too for our Peek-a-boos.

Great company, great owner. I also have them on my Caliber. One of the shutters came slightly misaligned, Terry replaced it no problem.

Re: Peek A Booo Porthole shutters

It is good to know that they stand by their product... because I just ordered their CloZure Shutters for my boat and they are being made right now...
