I made some port coverings out of thin plastic, cut out of old kitty litter boxes.  Then covered to plastic with material, with shock cord sewn in.  The shock cord holds them up over the up over the window by wrapping it over the hinge and under the dogs.  They can easily be removed and placed on the hand holds under the windows when not in use.

Try Peek-A-Boo blinds - now called CloZures.  They can be found online at - https://www.zarcor.com/products/clozures/#gal-image-0

They work great, but the nylon rivets that hold the two panels together get brittle and crack over time.  Would buy some extra up front.

On Ambition we use a semi rigid plastic sheet covered in Sunbrella that needs to be bent slightly to fit in all the side and overhead fixed windows. they remain in place under even bumpy conditions. Cab=n be completely removed or left in place to keep the sun out. They are probably as old as the boat and still work perfectly. I can send pictures to you in a month when we get back on board.

Our 1999 46 came with port window coverings made from Sunbrella with elastic. We are looking for alternatives possibly louvers .
Anyone have suggestions?

Thanks,
