Tamarack had them too, High Class port lights :cool:
The owner of that operation is a character too.

All the hardware on the NFMs are stainless (the interior dogs, etc) whereas I can’t tell but the other two that doesn’t seem to be the case?

My NFMs also have really nice and robust screens.

You won’t be disappointed

Newfound. I installed 8 last year. Follow the instructions. Beautiful stuff, and yes, Richard is . . . Richard. Easy to deal with. The pattern . . . I still have mine - I'm one of "those people," but I figure I paid for it. 4" x 14". I'll be done with it when I slap a couple lights in the Dyer 29.

I replaced all four plastic with Manship and really like them. Not cheap but good quality.

There is a shop nearby me with 6 or 8 7x15 Perko's for sale @ 190.ea if I recall. They have bronze trim rings and screens with them.
I have bronze NFM's and they have been great but given a choice I'd have the Perkos, they are the real deal.
