If you get the chance, you might ask them why Pt Townsend foundry is now making the old new found metals handrails (which I have on my Cape George 36).

Re: Portlight in Companionway Door

Well I'm confused because I tried to contact them in 2006-ish to have some custom portlights cast and got nothing but disconnected phones. I ended up using Pt Townsend Foundry and they told me NFM had folded and PTF had all the forms if I wanted to order any more handrail fittings (because that's what I have on deck and I wanted more for doing handholds down below).

So there's a story in there somewhere but I don't know what it is.
