    Need 12 replacement Portlights

    A good friend is replacing 12 cooked plastic portlights on a Morgan OI 41. He has tasked me to look for an option cheaper than the $170+ cost from Pompanette/Bomar. Any wisdom would be appreciated. The opening size in the deck is 4.5" x 14,5"

    New hatch slides?

    My pig cruiser has a teak piece on deck on either side of the sliding hatch that is fairly overdue for replacement. I can make them out of teak but I am considering doing them in plastic; does anyone know where I can get 2 x 2 starboard and how hard is it to run through a table saw?

    Roller Furler Issues

    My pig cruising boat blew up the deck toggle on my ancient roller furler. The unit has no markings or anything as to who made it and I need some parts or plan on replacing the unit. It was interesting watching the whole foil/sail/forstay fluttering downwind of the boat in 12 knots to say the...

    Aqua Buff Gel Coat Polishing

    I have a 10 year old Whaler and I wanted to take care of some heavy gel coat oxidation from the previous owner's neglect. Last summer I tried to restore the gel coat on my J24 while it was on the hard. I wet sanded the hull with 800, 1000. 1200 and 2000 grit wet and dry then followed with 3M...
