Hi Dan,

 

We've been using this method for several years and find it to be quite
adequate:

Friends:

We are trying to deal with the vexing problem of covering the portholes in
the master cabin, guest cabin and heads.  The solution needs to provide
privacy and light control whether the ports are open or closed.  If the
ports are open, the solution needs to provide for ventilation.

In our boat, the surfaces above the portholes are at an angle that make
attaching a screen difficult without a valance - - - which we would like to
avoid due to infringement on the light and view.

At present we have hand-sewn "bonnets" that fit loosely over the porthole
frames like an old-fashioned shower cap.

We have seen "disk" solutions that cover the porthole glass.  But the disks
provide no privacy or light control if the port is open.

Please send any photos of your solutions.

Many thanks for your suggestions.
