  • Rain Drain ports are designed for use where cabin sides are sloped, and other ports would collect rain and spray. The molded in Rain Drain™ channels drain while tipped as much as 40°. They resist clogging and are easy to clean. No water enters the boat when you open the port after a rain.

    Beckson plastic portlights have a long history of excellent service and superior design features. They feature no corrosion, no condensation, no leaks, and no waterfall when you open the port.

    • Screen and exterior trim ring are included • Replacement parts are readily available • All Beckson Opening Ports are CE approved • For replacing existing portlights, Beckson Fixed and Opening Ports are engineered to standard mounting hole sizes for interchangeability with other manufacturer's ports

    Selection and Installation — • In choosing the size of a portlight for new construction, it is generally best to mount the largest port possible — for more light and better ventilation • The slope of the mounting location will dictate the type of port required — standard Beckson Self-Draining ports for near vertical mounting (to 15° max.), or Rain Drain ports for larger angle mounting • To determine the spigot length (depth) to order, estimate the hull or cabin wall thickness, and select a spigot at least that deep. Both portlight styles come in 1" or 2" spigot depths. Spigots should be trimmed flush with a fine toothed saw after installation for best drainage. • Note that the thicker the cabin wall thickness, the smaller the slope where Rain Drain ports will self-drain — a 1" spigot has a maximum drain angle of 40°, while a 2" spigot has a maximum drain angle of 24° • Use silicone sealant as sealant for its superior gasket forming properties
