Stainless Steel ports
In the fall of 2003 I installed six stainless ports from New Found Metals on my S-34 MIK I and have absolutely NO complaints. The project is documented on my website at: http://www.geocities.com/earlylight160/Ports.html

That did it! Looks way better than the Becksons and should work a lot
better, too. Perhaps I must now agree with CB and ask for no more photos!
See if you can find a shop to do a polish and clear anodizing on the trim. That would look great and hold up for a number of years. Dog sled racing? I hope that’s the hump.

You got that one right Peter.
I cannot seem to spit that hook. I got to get those and find a local place to polish the fix portlight trim.
Though they will not go in until next year (taking a season off from racing and redoing in the interior), I will probably pick those puppies up in the next couple of weeks and put them in my "to be installed" box.
Which reminds me "where's my Garhauer series 40 mainsheet system with the torlon bearings I ordered at the show ??". Next week is the International Dog Sled Championships in Laconia NH (a great place to excercise a flask), but after that, time to get moving on spring projects..

John K., Greg Whalen and I spoke to the NFM guy in Philly a couple of weeks ago. He said that the work involved in adapting NFM ports to the Mk II/III crease made the Man Ship Ports from Mariners Hardware a better choice. He specifically recommended Mariners, not Hood for the ports, and spoke highly of Mariners Hardware. Frustrating, because the NFM ports are a work of art. John was in love/lust with them for his 32.

I know your site well.
Still hoping not to be the first Mk II installation!
It will also involve cutting new openings in the saloon, since as with the
Mk Is, early years had only four small ports, not six.
