Replacement Portholes

Okay guys and gals,* Whats the best source for replacement portholes for my heads and front cabin?* They are all in very poor condition and need to be replaced.* The brackets are broken in most cases and can't be fixed!* Your advice is ever so welcome!!

Replacement Portholes

Hiya,
If you can't find used ones, try http://www.newfoundmetals.com/index.html
There's also a "sticky" under General Discussion for used part sources.

Here's a source you probably wouldn't think of...the Fuller Brush Co.!
http://www.fuller.com/products_subca...at=2&subcat=11

The guy who founded it was a big sailor, so they also developed some marine stuff.

I just replaced mine with fixed larger alluminum ones from Wynn Industries in Alabama. I'm very pleased and the price is incredible.
