Default Porthole Window Treatments

Hey Guys...
I'm just about done with my carpet/hardwood floor refit..I'll have some pics up soon. Anyone come up with a classy idea for porthole window blinds/shades. I know oceanaire makes a pleated option:

Wondering if any of you have done something different as far as blinds/shades go.

Thanks,
Jeff

FUNNY you should bring this up...I have a young lady making me some drop down flaps of material to cover the portlights....in the midberth I had her use some material that is reinforced with 4 hang down tabs ...unroll them and viola....they cover the portlight perfectly(admirable loves em)....so..I'm having more made for the bow section....I use snaps and they just snap right in place..

I'll get some picks as soon as they are all constructed...

The boat goes back in in a few weeks and window coverings for the cabin is on my project list too. I been thinking snaps or magnets to hold a cover in place. Please give us some ideas of what you have done.

Thank you seapuppy! I think there is a lot of good information to share here.
I look forward to seeing what you worked up for the ports.

My wife made some flat rectangular panels from part of a bed spread set (I think she used the bed skirt) and I installed 3 snaps to only the top plastic port hole frame. The whole interior now matches with the bed spread. We can take them down and place them flat under the settee. She made 2 smaller ones for the v-berth area, only used 2 snaps.
You can even open the port hole (hinged at the top) and the shade can remain on and out of the way.

Sorry don't have any pics- at least not till spring.

ok..here's the mods I did to the midberth....I had a friend make the drapes to my spec's...then I added the snaps..the male snaps are screwed into the bottom of the facia board...and the female snaps are attached to the tangs...I just roll them up and tuck the ends under the boards....works great...keeps people from sneaking a peak and darkens the midberth so the admirable can sleep in some..



the drapes stowed.


Drape deployed..


snaps installed.
