Porthole Hanger


If your boat’s portholes won’t stay up when opened, here’s a easy-to-make and cheap solution.


Fashion 5cm (2") square hardwood blocks, two per porthole. Drill and countersink for required fasteners to hold blocks to the deckhead (or cabin side). Drill a 3mm (1/8") hole in the center of each block and countersink this hole on the wrong side to allow space for the knotted cord end. Cut 3mm (1/8") cord in 15cm (6") lengths or so, allowing extra for knots on both ends.

Thread a line through each block and finish with a stopper knot. Mount blocks to the deckhead at an angle to the porthole hold-downs (see photo on page 20). Hold the porthole open and mark the cord for placement of a 1/2-round plastic drawstring ball, the kind typically placed on jackets and available at fabric stores. Thread the cord through the holder and tie a stopper knot. Provided blocks are mounted so the angle of the cord puts tension on the portholes, these hangers should hold in all but the roughest of waterways.
