Ok, I have an Allied Seawind
II that I've been fighting main salon ports
in for 2 years. the original fixed ports
are of the variety of Alu frame with acrylic
lenses. I have had the frames and lenses out already, new lenses, etc......they still leak after some motion and don't let in any air. I would love to replace them with opening ports, but the holes are bigger than any ports I can find (8"x28"). My next thought is to attach acrylic
to the cabin
sides using either straight DOW 795 or the 795 combined with some 3M monster tape. Now the kicker
, I'd like to put a small lewmar
port in the middle of the acrylic window to allow for some ventilation.
Is this a good idea? Can the acrylic glued to the cabin
sides withstand the pressure of pushing the port closed? will the acrylic be strong enough to hold a port attached to it?
