Subject: new port lights

It's come time to replace the port lights on my M32 Kathryn Grace. I would welcome any suggestions - where to find suitable replacements in particular.

Hi Eric,
I recommend that you contact Scott at Bluewater Hardware, located in Sausalito. I purchased some Bronze port lights from him when I rebuilt Gitana Vela (M31 #95).

Eric,
I purchased my bronze port lights from ABI. West Marine can get them for you, but beware they are very expensive through WM. Last I saw they were about 499 each!
I think Mariners Hardware has the same size port lights, but they are making their own. I bought bronze dorade vents from them and they are great quality. They really look great on Hexli.
Best of luck!
Al

Spartan Marine also has good quality bronze port lights. I would get the blue water ports. Spartan Marine is located in Maine.
Yours truly, Kathy

Thanks everyone. Lon Woodrum of Sausalito, who worked for Clair Oberly in the early 1970's knows the original supplier of the windows, who has exact replacements. Lon is a great source of info and skill for the CA made Mariners. The supplier was GoMarine, I think, and now is Mark Plastic, in So Cal.
