Gray Enterprises Ports and Parts




Perhaps the most popular marine port ever built, Gray Ports were used on many production sailboats in the 1980's and 1990's and are still in use today. Parts are available for shipment within one business day (unless out of stock) and the life span of the ports can exceed 20 years. They remain a tremendous value.

Do you have Gray Ports?

There are three brands of plastic ports found on sailboats and they look almost identical at first glance. Start by looking at the frame inside the cabin. A Gray Enterprises port will have Gray Enterprises, Tampa, Florida stamped on the bottom side.

If you find the name PYHI or Beckson you do NOT have a Gray port and these parts will not fit.

Next, check the lens. A Gray port lens will have a "frame" around it. Also look at the hinges: the hinge on the right accepts a larger pin than the hinge on the left (when looking at the cabin side).

If your port matches these criteria the parts listed below will fit.

Sizing guide

Open the port and measure the lens from outside edge to outside edge. Match the dimensions to those described below. All products in the row will fit that port. Just click the link to purchase.

Gasket sizes

Gasket is used to make a water tight seal where the lens closes onto the port frame. Two sizes were used: the 1/4" is found on the discontinued PYHI ports and older Gray ports made in the early-80's. The 3/8" size has a "T" profile and self-adhesive (that's the red strip in the photo) and was used on Gray ports made from the mid-80's to present. When checking your ports remember that the current gasket may have changed size from 20 years of compression!

Get the right spigot

The term spigot refers to the part that goes through the fiberglass and extends beyond it to the outside.

Angled spigot: The lip of the port angles down toward the deck. If the spigot type is not specified it is a straight spigot.

Straight drain: Includes drain holes to help remove standing water from outside the lens.

Angled drain: Includes drain holes to help remove standing water from outside the lens.

Installation

The ports do not include installation instructions but there's an excellent step-by-step tutorial here.

Check the dogs (knobs) first

Check your dogs (knobs) to see if the have a brass insert inside. If so, you will need to replace both the dog and the stainless steel pin. If the threads inside the dog are stainless, the dogs listed will fix your existing pins.

Complete ports

Complete ports come with everything: the port body, lens, trim ring, screen, and gasket. Installation adhesive is not included.

New Port Shutters

These shutters are sized specifically for Gray portlights. They are incredibly easy to install (no tools required). The built-in design requires no drilling, and leaves no shades flapping around when not in use. In addition to 100% privacy when closed, they prevent heat and UV rays from entering the boat, keeping the cabin cooler. Light beige color.

Fast shipping on parts

We stock gasket, dogs, lens, trim rings, and screens for same- or next-day shipment (when in stock). Complete ports are not stocked and require 2-3 weeks plus shipping time.
