Anyone heard of Vaassen Ports....

We need to replace several of our opening ports...the originals are from Denmark and it would appear that they are no longer in business. I have not found where they were picked up by another manufacturer such as Goiot or Vetus...has anyone found suitable replacements? They are in a recessed area so they need to be exact replacements.

Vaassen is a city (Pop. 30,000+), in The Netherlands (Holland) in the state Gelderland (Lat/Lon: 52.283 N x 5.966 E).
Reading Dutch (or even German) might help in searching.

Re: Anyone heard of Vaassen Ports....

I have five of them I am trying to find out more about. I have only searched for a few hours, but with no luck yet. Mine have a label that says Lloyd certified.

Re: Anyone heard of Vaassen Ports....

Aluminium Industrie Vaassen is - I believe - no more in existence. I will check this as I am in same province. It might be that they are taken over by another company.
Can let you know.

Re: Anyone heard of Vaassen Ports....

I'm just guessing here, but I would imagine that after five to six years, the OP went and replaced his port lights.

Even for a sloth-like sailor, that's a long time to put up with rain in the saloon.
