Nice, I like the old school look.Here's a look at our boat sporting round portholes. They were taken from an old lobster boat that was scrapped. They are bronze and open from the inside. They did have screens in them to keep out the bugs when opened, but were taken out as they were pretty shot. When we built our boat the ports were probably 40 years old with 40 years of red paint on them. A lot of cleaning but looked new when we put them in. I'd go round every time.
Ah how the hell could someone scap that boat the Jeanette L..? That boat's frigging gorgeous. Probably everything I could want in a boat.
Until all the white oak sawn frames need replacing and the lumber alone is $8000 or some f#$#$ng thing. The cost of things today is just ruining all our fun.
