Damned nice opening portlight for the application is the Beckson Newport series. Rugged, screens, many sizes, don't leak, parts availability and can be found about everywhere for for about $125/each (depending on size).

If you have an opening hatch in your trunk cabin, please don't buy opening ports. You'll get plenty air flow via the hatch when you want it. Opening ports will just be another source of leakage and trouble-eventually. My $0.02.

I installed the New Found portlights on my Duffy 3 years ago, nice, dont leak, they were the least expensive SS ones I could find.

Another positive about the Becksons is the degree of difficulty trimming the portlight's spigot to length. Not saying that a stainless spigot can't be trimmed but the degree of difficulty is exponentially beyond that of the Becksons.
