My original 4 superstructure portholes were always a bad design
They opened outwards onto side deck
. (I have the scars to prove it) and depended on rubber weather-striping and bulk of teak
trim to keep the rain out… (External hinge was the leak point)
Will replace after the rainy season here in the Philippines
, (over 1m rain last few days) so researching options at reasonable price
for these 4 upper portholes
, so was hoping to get away from alloy replacement like Lewmar
, but have no sense of the quality of a Poly choice like these Beckson
Opening Ports by Beckson
, I don’t have the opportunity of handling replacement options to feel the quality before buying
so hoping someone who has had experience with plastic rectangular portholes… can advise me if they know of a quality choice in plastic.
I just don’t want to automatically default to the expensive stainless steel
options or worry about alloy… because I can’t sample the plastic ones
Thanks for your advice.
