The portlight and its exterior frame are screwed together and, I found, come apart easiest by grabbing the light and dogs from the inside and twisting. A few smart wraps with a hammer freed up any corrosion in the bronze threads. The calk was Dolphonite, and the result, obvious.

At what point is one across the point of no return? Here the propane locker has been removed, the electric receptacle pulled out, and the top trim is off. Under the trim and under the cloth, dark wood.
