Hints and Tips



SO49DS adding a forward cabin portlight

Increase daylight and ventilation


To improve the level of natural light and also ventilation on our Sun Odyssey 49DS I installed an additional portlight in the forward bulkhead aft of the deck locker, that is already fitted with transparent deck hatch.

The portlight used was an aluminum standard size 4 Lewmar portlight series.


The only extra modification required was to relocate the locker ladder down about eight inches.
