Manta 'Beesmej'

Bernard and Maggie Logan hail from the UK and sail throughout the Altantic. When we asked about the name of their Manta, Bernard emailed,"The name Beesmej was forced upon us. My initials are B L; Maggie's are M E J. We had asked the British Registry for "B'SMEJ"; but they would not allow a punctuation in the name. So BEESMEJ sounded the same as B'SMEJ; hence the name.

So as not to have the name of the yacht on the tender, Maggie chose "Real Jem"; jem being the reverse order of her initials. Actually, the best name combination we have come across belonged to a mega-yacht in Antigua. The yacht was absolutely beautiful and was called "Illusion". The tender was called "Reality"!

Entering the Panama Canal

This is the Bridge of the Americas at the south entrance to the Panama Canal. It actually "joins" North and South America.

Panama City, Panama

Alexis Arjona sent a photo of Panama city taken from his 1997 Island Packet 350. Alexis wanted PortVisors because as he says, "Remember Panama is in the tropics, and when it rains, it RAINS!!!" [19R]

Island Packet, before and after PortVisors

Alexis Arjona sent this before (left) and after (right) photo his PortVisor installation on his 1997 Island Packet 350. [19R]

Alexis emailed, "Visors installed, and rain pouring. Tropical rain I mean!! Portlights open, no water coming in!!!"

Island Packet

We greatly enjoy getting updates on Alexis Arjona's Island Packet PortVisors. [19R]
"Mother nature put the visors on test. They work fine!!!"

Catalina 34

Tasha is a Traveler who became an English Teacher and then a School Owner but really wanted to be a Ski Bum and instead became a Sailor. When her husband Ryan blurted out in 2005, "It's my dream to sail around the world," her response was, "That's ridiculous. Who lives on a boat?!" Which resulted in them not speaking. But the idea festered. So in October 2012, Tasha found herself sailing out of New York City with Ryan and their two cats aboard a Catalina 34 sailboat with an appetite for adventure and a blog url. You can follow their Surf to Turf journey and you can read their endorsement of PortVisors. [14R] [19R]

Ceili ~ Island Packet

Bill & Linda Daley installed PortVisors™ on both forward head ports of their Island Packet 40 Ceili. [19-R]

They write, "This will allow us to ventilate this area in all conditions. A great product!"

Island Packet

Island Packet portholes are shorter than average so they benefit from this special size PortVisor, which protects from rain but still allows enough opening for good ventilation. [19R]

Island Packet

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Island Yachting Centre (IYC) in Palmetto, Florida we can show you how our newest PortVisor model looks on an Island Packet. IYC specializes in Island Packets and has won numerous awards for both sales and service. [19R]

Island Packet

The aft cabin on Island Packets has ports in recessed areas, which are just wide enough to mount PortVisors. [19R]

Island Packet

All Island Packets use the same size PortVisors. [19R]

Jon King's Rainbows End

Jon King reports that the visors are in place and doing well on his 39' Prout. "I'm planning to cruise the Bahamas from N Bimini to the Caicos over the next few months [leaving from St James City near Pine Island, FL]." [19-R]

"It is so nice to be able to have the ports open during rain showers. They even help me to better sleep. Not only is it more comfortable inside, but there's no need to get up & close ports to keep rain out when a shower comes. They are well conceived, functional, well made, easy to install, and good looking. My perspective is they actually add to the look of the boat. A great product accompanied by the best service imaginable. Thanks again."

Jon King's Rainbows End

Jon King says, "Everyone I've showed or told about them is impressed. What a great idea. Consensus seems to ask; Why didn't someone come up with these a long time ago? I think you have a great product & appreciate your kindness to me. It feels good to share this with others." [19-R]

Island Packet

Jan and Tom McIntyre's Island Packet 35 looks as good today as it did 20 years ago when they started living aboard. [19R]

Island Packet

Tom and Jan McIntyre are very comfortable aboard their Island Packet 35, hull #80. [19R]

They write, "After 20 years living aboard Moonstar we found your PortVisors and they are great! In the Pacific NW we do not need to open all our ports so we just have the PortVisors on the galley and head ports, the ones we normally would open even in the Seattle rain."

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!"
