port light screens

Post by jlodolce »

We have a 1995 Freedom 40/40 #16. I am looking for some new port light screens. Can anyone direct me to where I can purchase some? I am not sure who manufactured the port lights, hence not sure how to replace the screens. I found on Marine Depot Direct a product that looks very similar to what I have, but I want to be sure they will be exactly the same fit. The port lights themselves are fine, I just need the screens. Here are links to what I found online:

This is what my port lights look like:

I believe the port lights are-
Man Ship Industries - Taiwan with us distributor in Chino Ca marinedepotdirect.com

The link to screens is https://www.marinedepotdirect.com/portl ... reens.html

I have ordered fittings with good luck but haven’t tried for screens- see what they can do!

Thanks. That is what I posted as what I found they look like when I researched the internet. I wanted to check to see if anyone else was sure of this before I ordered anything.

I bought one and installed it this weekend. It was an exact match, so I am buying 4 more, since the old ones fall out very easily.

I have jury rigged them the last few years by covering the rubber part of the old screens with white vinyl tape, which helps, but they still fall out at times.
