It appears I have some work to do this year! My 2 port side portlights are leaking. Any hints on how to remove them and re-bed?

Thanks

Hi Phil,
First, be sure they're leaking around the frame, not the gasket. If the gaskets are old, they might be the culprit.

I have hull #47, so probably the same ports as you. I replaced the gaskets and screens last year. I'm slowly catching up a blog with various repair info. See this post: http://maintenance.mariner2.net/2011/05/port-gaskets-and-screens.html -- it links through to some good info from Beckson). I believe that took care of my leaks.

Rebedding doesn't look too bad, although it's probably a two person job. Remove the screws, pull apart, scrape off old sealant, and rebed with a polysulfide like BoatLife LifeCalk (don't use 5200). Apply the sealant, and gently screw back together, but don't crank down and squeeze out all of the sealant. Let it cure for a week, then come back and tighten down the rest of the way.

Of course, I'm saying all this without the actual experience of doing it, so take it for what it's worth!

-Joe

Hi- I was wondering if anyone could help me find a replacement screen for my galley, head and 2 bow stateroom porthole. I believe they are roughly 5x12.
The one I need to replace have 2 "O" rings on the outside of the screens. The ones I got a West Marine do not fit.
Not sure who makes the window.

Thanks. Steve

Steve - My guess is that they are Beckson 5X12. Go to the Beckson site - http://www.beckson.com/ and you will find replacement parts including screens. They are very easy to deal with and provide great service.
