Adding opening ports to a Plexiglass Window

Several new boats are including opening ports in fixed plexiglass windows like these:

Does anyone have experience retrofitting these? Any sources for the ports?

Seems like it might be a good solution to adding some ventilation without too much cutting.

Thanks,

Curtis

Thanks, Maddog.

Any lessons learned? Which model did you use?

I bought some platic ports that were on sale (x6) Opening ports at $40/ea. It was a great buy. I haven't installed them yet. Maybe a little later in the summer. Search for a thread called "Sexy Windows" in the forum. That is how I am going to install them using a 3M VHB double sided tape. Read the thread then ask me your questions. While I haven't installed them yet, I have done the research.
