The Hull / Portholes, portlghts?
« on: June 07, 2019, 11:19:54 PM »
Hello everybody
My name is Paul and I am the newish owner of Number 95, Heligan.
My question is about the portlights/ portholes.
I was cleaning around the brass suround on the porthole when I pressed lightly on the "glass"
And to my dismay, I pushed the Glass in. It was an oval piece of Perspex which was just glued in place with a bit of silicon sealant. Is this normal for Winklebrigs or is there some sort of fixing ring missing?
I have looked up a pair of new bronze portlights from Davey's and they seem to be priced around £500
Surely there is a method of fixing the window in a more secure way?
I look forward to reading your comments
Regards
Paul
