If you can do fiberglass work yourself, you can save a lot of money. From your earlier comment about replacing your wood interior I doubt you have a fiberglass skin interior, which will make it a straight forward project.
Portlights are easy to install, but matching the exterior gel coat can be frustrating and may never be perfect.

Another fine manufacturer is Diamond Sea Glaze, a Canadian company. They are extremely well made and do not leak, even the sliders on the sides of my pilothouse which are 15+ years old. They are expensive though.

Rather than patch the 'glass, tedious at best, perhaps an adapter might be considered and made that might not look like an accident:

Teak trim gone, Loran gone, instruments rearranged so that the Coonhound cannot sleep in front of the depth- or wind gauge.

With respect to my previous comment, can anybody see or does anybody know what's going on with this popular trawler?

(I confess, it's one reason I did not want to buy one of this very competent design, but it really does work!)

"Wynne windows suck. The ones I have seen first hand are not marine water tight. Fine for an RV."

Agreed that green water seldom washes RV windows , but RV-ers dont like leaks either.

Round ports will not look proper.

A simple choice would be to cut the area to match larger stock windows from a higher cost/quality mfg.
