Fairline Corniche porthole catch

Post by rjb021080 » Wed Jul 31, 2019 6:18 am

When I purchased my 1986 corniche I was wondering if this was the only one in the world that had a missing porthole catch.

As you can no longer purchase these from Denmark it appeared an off the shelf solution or bespoke manufacture was the way ahead.

So having found a friend who owns a lathe and mill very kindly went about working up a solution.

The results are below! Let me know if anyone else is also missing the same catch! The catch on the left is the original and the two on the right the newly manufactured ones
