If you're going stainless, I recommend Man Ship Marine.
We have 3 hatches by them and they are very well done.
What were you not impressed with? Can you expound?
I extensively researched, touched, felt and played with many manufacturers products, including Man Ship and despite the reasonable price
the NFM ports won hands down. Price
point was not a concern for me and the only thing that mattered was quality & functionality.
The Man Ship ports use rolled/stamped stainless frames (considerably cheaper to manufacture) vs. the much heavier cast stainless or bronze construction of the NFM port lights.
The NFM ports have preformed flawlessly and never once leaked a drop..
Here's an install article I wrote up on the installation
