Custom Fixed SS Portlights ?

The original four-sided aft aluminum portlights will almost certainly have to go at some point. Their design is almost part of the Ericson trademark so I want to keep the look, but with a SS replacement.

What are the options ? Are there straight inside-outside extrusions that I could ask a SS welder cut and weld into the same shape (less the rounded corners) and properly fit with gaskets and glass ? How about custom manufacturers ?

A few $200-400 each is ok, but a BOAT each would be a budget buster.

Thanks,



-Sven

Thanks for the links !

NFM is who we are going with for the 7 4x14 opening ports and the larger 8x18 opening port. Already have all of those and are in the process of getting them installed. I'll ask them about custom designs and see what they say. I'll ping the others too.

Thanks again,



-Sven
