I've got plastic Beckson screened ports and the stbd side (4 ports) need to be rebedded. Are these plastic- framed ports more likely to need rebedding
? Wondering if I should upgrade or go with the same ports. Recommendations if upgrade is recommended? Needs to be screened.

What were they bedded with? Mine are going on 12 years with no issues. Sealed them up with Rule 301 by Sudbury - Clear elastomeric sealant.

I don't know what was used. There is some sloppily applied sealant (silicon?) around the edges. Don't know if previous owner tried to seal edges without pulling them
