Rich and Mena Will have a Marine Trader 34 — Risk Factor. It has gone from the Canadian border to Key West and currently resides in Punta Gorda, Florida. [15R]

Rich writes, "We can't wait to see pictures of 'Risk Factor' on your website. We love the way they look on the boat and we're sure they are going to perform as advertised."

We installed the port light covers. They look and work great! Even in rainy Seattle! We spent the weekend on the boat and we had great ventilation and not a drop of water in the boat. Thank you for a great product!

Hylas 46'

Tim Fitzmaurice currently sails his 2000 46' Hylas, Caregg, in Camden, Maine. [14R fits better] [15R]

Tim writes, "I purchased a couple of port covers a month or so ago & you requested some photos. The 14½ ones [14R] probably fit the best… the 15R was a little large… it would be helpful if you told people to put some sort of alignment tape on the ports & the hull before removing the cover of the sticky tape. They seem to work pretty good… heavy rain will still come in but nothing like without them. I was surprised that I did not seem to kick them… they have only been on for a month but I would recommend them for folks in rainy areas like Maine. I’ll order a couple more when I get a chance. Thanks."

Southern Cross 35

Here is Barry Bartholomew's SeaSwift, a 1983 Southern Cross 35 cutter built in Bristol, RI. Pictured here with her new PortVisors at berth in her home port of Everett, Washington. [15-R]

Barry writes, It's been known to rain a wee bit in the Pacific NorthWest and the PortVisors let the fresh air in while keeping the rain on the correct side of the boat........that would be the outside!

Dale Falk in Alaska

Although this was their Labor Day cruise, you can still see some snow on the mountainside in the background. Dale Falk took this photo in Aialik Bay, part of the Kenai Fjords National Park. [15-R]

"Approaching Holgate Glacier. As we approached the glacier the winds increased, peaking at 28 knots ... 'twas a cool breeze." Dale Falk has many other photos of Cirrus posted on Labor Day Cruise. [15-R]

Dale Falk writes, "You can always find something to do on a boat. Checking the chafe protection on the spreaders." This also happens to be the world's highest altitude photo of a PortVisor.

You will see the beauty of Alaska in a whole new way — its scenery, animals, bugs, and more.

Dale Falk in Alaska

Dale Falk writes, "My wife Bobbi and I sail our Omega 36 Cirrus out of Seward, Alaska. With our short sailing season we try to maximize our time on the boat so poor weather sailing is a fact of life for us. We tried a single PortVisor to see how we liked it...we like them very much and will be ordering 3 more." Here Cirrus is anchored in McMullen Cove – framed with driftwood. [15-R]

Paul Flynn in Tolland CT writes, "I installed the PortVisors this weekend on my 42' Duffy and Duffy, 1988. They went on easily and my 1st mate loves them." [15-R]

Beneteau 423

Stuart Kaufman of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan installed PortVisors on his Beneteau 423. [15-R, 26-R]

I think they are going to work great. Because the cabin top slopes down on an angle I could never leave the ports open even in a light rain. I think these are going work perfectly to allow for ventilation in rainy weather. They also look nice and clean and don’t effect the lines.

Beneteau 423

Not long after installing the rain shields on his Beneteau 423, Stuart Kaufman emailed us, BTW it rained hard last night and no water got in the boat. [15-R, 26-R]

Beneteau 423

Thank you very much, Stuart Kaufman, for your posting on the Beneteau 423 owners internet group:
For years, every time it rains I have to shut all hatches and ports and suffer having no ventilation in the cabin. Because of the slope of the cabin top water runs in the side ports no matter how light the rain. I have thought about making some sort of a gutter or awning but never figured out an elegant solution. I just came across a product called PortVisor and installed them this spring. I now can leave the ports open in the rain and have some ventilation without having the rain come in. BTW, I don’t have any financial or other interest in the company that makes this product, I just think it solves a problem in a very elegant way.

TESTIMONIALS

Matthew & Natasha H — Cairns, Australia

"PortVisors are great, they stop the rain coming in at night so dad doesn't have to get up and close the hatches. Then he isn't cranky when doing our home schooling the next day."

[This feedback and pic are from 2008, right after we started Seaworthy Goods. Both are still our favorites because they gave us inspiration when we needed it most.]

Mark R — NEW ZEALAND

"What a fantastic product! So easy to install and so effective! This has completely transformed my boat and the way I live inside. I can leave the windows open in most weathers and my boat can breathe! I would also like to commend you on the quality of the product, strong, durable and attractive. 16 months on and they are exactly as on the day of installation with no issues whatsoever! I can honestly say that this is the best 'value' thing I have done on my boat."

Regina C —Jacksonville, FL
"I would like to tell you how happy we are with the PortVisors we ordered last week. As new sailboat owners, you worry that you might get carried away with buying stuff. Well, that is not the case with PortVisors. They proved their worth this week after a storm.

[with 2nd order] We really loved the first 2 we ordered last week. A wonderful addition to our boat and increases our quality of life."

Steve D — BC, Canada

"I received the PortVisors on Friday, installed them on Saturday and I'm very pleased with the results. I was a little concerned about the tape when I ordered them but as I was doing the installation I soon realized it holds very well and does the trick and I'm glad I didn't need to drill holes. Thanks very much for an excellent product."

Val f — St Francis 44' cat

"I am pleased to say that my port visors are on and life aboard has changed ... I can leave the portholes open and especially at night we get a much more comfortable night's sleep. Thank you! The brilliant port visors do the job!"

Janice P — 35' Marine Trader

"These visors and this company is the best! I bought 3 in 2012 and they are still perfect, except for the epoxy that somebody dripped on one of them. I am most comfortable recommending Seaworthy Goods to everyone."

Robyn & David P — Sarawak, Malaysia

"We love your PortVisors. They allow us to live in the topics and get air through the boat without the accompanying rain. Terrific. Thank you."

John P — USVI

"Hurricane Irma almost totaled my Beneteau while on the hard, so I need to replace 2 PortVisors. The other 8 stayed on. Your PortVisors are awesome!

When it rains I'm happily getting ventilation while other yachts are hunkered down running their AC or just closed up sweating down below. I tie off my anchor to my starboard forward cleat and open all the ports on the port side where the galley, etc resides. No problem!"

Sara & Larry G — Trawler in Canada

"We recently purchased some PortVisors from you guys and love them to death. We have owned our trawler for five years and this is the first time we have opened up the front sleeping cabin. Finally fresh. They have not let any water in though wide open during some severe rain storms. So thank you very much ... and thanks for being so helpful when ordering."

Matt S — CRUISING

"We installed four Visors in 2010. Then went cruising for 6 years, Florida to Trinidad and back; up to Newport and down, and now in Guatemala. All kinds of weather, seas, and abuse — being kicked occasionally. They held up quite well. We are definitely pleased with your product. Thanks for making it!"
