How do I replace fly wire ona porthole?

Postby PNGTaubada » October 25th, 2014, 9:54 pm

Hi. 1 have a 466 and the fly wire is damaged on the aft port windows, I unscrewed all of the screws to see if the frame easily comes off and it doesn't. The inside rubber seal seems glued and I don't want to damage this. Any help on The correct way to do this would be appreciated. , line in PNG so parts are not redily accessible.

I still haven't found a solution to this ... surely there must be a simple way of replacing the fly wire on the port holes?

By flywire, I'm assuming you mean screen. There is a replacement kit available thru Carver for these that includes a new seal. The brand of porthole is Schmitt (spelling may be wrong), but if you call Carver with your Hull number, they will either be able to sell you replacements or direct you to where you can get them.

Thanks for the advice! I will do that, although I'm in PNG - I assume they can freight it over ...
