Installing opening Portlight in fixed Lexan window?

Hi all,
I have a Tayana Vancouver 42 and would like to install opening portlights for cross ventillation in the galley and over the nav station. I am on the hook fulltime and off the breeze due to the current most of the time...

Current windows are Lexan, I believe and I have to pull them out to rebed anyway and thought it would be great if they opened!

Any suggestions and methods, as well as a good affordable portlight are appreciated.

Thanks,
Joe

There are lots of tutorials on this in member threads and YouTube.

Look for Ports cheap at Wolfs Marine in Bento Harbor, Michigan. https://www.wolfsmarine.com

Always call or Email them. They have many more items on hand but not shown on the site.

I would not buy ABS units, only stainless or bronze. I bought some newfound metal stainless units that were very nice and easy to install. I did buy the template they sell to make installation a breeze.
