Welcome aboard. This week we install all the new large fixed ports on the Boat. See how we prepared the surfaces in last weeks video and this week we apply sealant, adhesive and trimmed out the windows and excess bedding.
This is genuinely a learn from your mistakes kind of effort as I changed my method 3 times on the 6 ports. 🙂
Below I reference several tools and supplies that I used for the tasks in this weeks video. If you find a need to pick any of these up for your project, I have included links below (with our Amazon affiliate code).
Thank you for watching and please share this with your friends or someone that you think would get something from these videos. (Education, humor, dismay, whatever.)

Join us on our journey as we continue to rebuild, refit and prepare our Formosa 51 Sailboat for our continued cruising journey. We have always loved the Formosa, bought one (on a bit of a whim) late in 2014, moved aboard this one right away and started to do our refit while living board. We are avid fans of Cruising Outpost and Good Ole Boat (Good Old Boat) magazines and love the ideas we get from them.
