Title: Catalina-supplied porthole screens
Post by: grantreed on August 05, 2001, 05:43:08 AM
I have a 2001 C 34 MK II and have found the Catalina-supplied porthole screens hard to get in firmly. They all seem to bow and are easily knocked loose.
 
 Anyone have a trick for getting them into place permanently?

We gave up on those screens as they were a pain.
 My wife found a place to mail order screens that have a 3-M backing adhesive strip which applies to the aluminum frame.
 These screens have been a real improvement as not only do they look great but one can also see through the screens.
 This has been the second season and they have held up well.
 Unfortunately the address of the person who makes these screens is in my log book on my boat. I will be glad to email the address next week.
