If existing windows are still intact and templates are not otherwise available, an identical currently installed window could be removed and used to make a template. I did that successfully many years ago, making a port-side window from a starboard-side existing window, by reversing the glass to make the template. It may be your only option in this case.

Good luck with this.

Have you tried the owner's association?

The Cape Dory Board • Index page

There is a powerboat section.

I don't know anything about the cape dory, specifically. But, on a lot of boats one can remove the trim ring or clamp ring on the inside and trace the template from there.
