Q&A: Port Bezels

Question: Could you post detailed photos to your website of the wooden bezels you fitted to your ports to accept Plexiglas covers? Did you do the same for your hatches? We are losing the battle against condensation in Florida’s current cold snap. Thanks!

Answer: When we were battling condensation during our two winters in arctic Norway, we used plastic sheeting and weather-stripping to kludge a cheap and cheerful double glazing over the ports and hatches. It wasn’t beautiful but it worked quite well.

However, the bezels that we designed and had built to surround Morgan’s Cloud’s custom ports so that we can attach Plexiglas covers to them in the winter, do a much better job and look a lot better too. Now we’re contemplating how to deal with our large custom hatches…
