Looking for port hole screens

Postby Fishtale32 » Thu Jul 06, 2017 6:52 am

I am looking for port hole screens for my 71, 32 Express. Anyone know where I can pick a few up ?

NOT speaking from experience in that type of screen, but, given the age of our boats, and yours in particular, is there no way to just replace the porthole screen? I'd think Marinette would have anticipated that their boats would be in use for many years and some things, like screens, would deteriorate with just age (heat / cold during summer non-use/winter lay up, other factors) and would have designed the screens to be replaceable.

Jeff, I too am looking for screens. I have one ok screen and one that is destroyed. I assume yours and mine are the same. Do you still have your screen frames?

I just used epoxy and replaced the screens in the old frames.

No do not frames or anything. I was considering fabricating a screen frame.

If you are interested, I was going to see if Sundown Sheet metal in Fruitport could repair mine. If my frames fit yours, they could probably make new ones for you.
