Opening ports to replace Marsh Walters units
PA6317 Low Profile Aluminium Porthole
At last we are able to offer an off-the-shelf replacement for your crumbling Marsh Walters framed windows.
The cut out size is slightly larger at 634x175mm against 625x170mm but Westerly were a bit random at cutting the holes in the coachroof sides so it shouldn't require too much adjustment and the overall size is slightly smaller at 652x193mm against the original's 663x210mm.
Whilst the new frame should just cover the screw holes in the boat I think you will need to fill the holes with some epoxy gelcoat filler before installing rather than having to take the window out again to do the job properly if it starts leaking. The Vetus unit is a clamp fit and doesn't need any screw holes for fixing.

With mosquito screen and interior trim included, we will also include Scapa 3507/12 bedding tape and A4 stainless fixing screws
Replacement acrylic for the 'Marsh Walters' style of windows. If your window frame has only one join you will need to send it to me to be done, for those of you lucky enough to have a frame that splits into two parts there is advice on replacing the acrylic yourself here
Refurbishing Framed Windows however we can also do these for you (see below)
6mm thick clear acrylic 611x152mm with radius corners
6mm thick clear acrylic 612x151mm with radius corners
6mm thick clear acrylic 608x150mm with radius corners
As you can see, although all the windows look alike over the years they changed suppliers and there are slight variations in the size and corner radius. You will not know which size you require until you have dismantled the window
Refurbishing Framed windows
Windows stripped down, cleaned and reassembled, then wax polished and supplied with Scapa 3507 bedding tape for refitting to the boat without using mastic.

£20.00 per window
Most earlier Westerly yachts have framed windows held in by 3.5mm screws and interscrews (or 4BA threads on very early boats).
The original interscrews and screws were made of chrome plated brass and you will probably find if you remove a window that some of the interscrews have failed. Others will break when you try to tighten them up again. They are all likely to be blocked up with old sealant.
We have had a special production run of stainless steel interscrews made with 3.5mm tapping. Feed back showed that Westerly owners were concerned that our other interscrews did not have slots in the heads so we specified slots with the new batch of fixings. In order to machine the slots they had to make the heads deeper.
M3.5 Fixings Kits
Kits contain stainless steel interscrews, countersunk screws in 10mm, 12mm and 16mm lengths, Scapa 3507 bedding tape and a fixing guide.
With a drill enlarge the holes in the clamping frame and the grp to 7mm or 17/64" (not the frame with the glass!)
If you wish to purchase the interscrews singly and without the machine screws they are £1.00 each
