Port lights

Anyone have a good source to replace these port lights off my 1983 KHA Shing Trawler? Seems to be flush mount type.

We replaced 11 portholes on our boat with New Found Metals portholes. We love them. They are cast 316 stainless steel. As a matter of fact I have 2 5 x 12 with 1.5” spigots left over. I ordered 11 with 1.5” spigots and 2 needed to be 2” spigots so I have 2 that I want to get rid of.

They seem to be bronze and of a rational design.

Why scrap them instead of cleaning and installing new gasket rubber ?

They are plastic and worn out.

"the wrong size " will be a big hassle unless you can find duplicates.

Might be worthwhile to examine the boat to see what could be fitted with the least chopping , carving etc.,, as you look for replacements.

When I replaced my portholes I had to enlarge the holes in the boat. I used a router with one of NFMs templates. It was a lot of work but the new portholes are awesome.

Looks like they may be old Beckson ports. What is the size of the hole they go in?

Those ports haven't been made since the 1970s. They don't hold up well, so you don't find used ones easily.
