Welcome to the forum Bill.
What are you putting those on.
Did you get the external backing ring?

How do you plan to mount the porthole..it has no spigot and no outer trim ring? It looks like a decorative item to me.

Backing rings are available seperately? Hmmm, glass is optional? LoL

So these 'inexpensive' portlights are over $300 USD with the ring and then you have to ship them? With a weight of more than 28 lbs each, shipping is going to add up, especially if you live in North America (they come from the UK). Their website says, "...replacement of the glass or conversion to a mirror or frosted effect [is] very simple..". This sounds much more like a decorative item then a true offshore product. Buyer beware.
