	I'd be interested if you don't mind. I would like smoked lexan
instead of clear and would need to know the shipping charges to
Middletown, NY. That's about 70 miles north of NYC.

	Also, has anyone ever made a cradle for the boom? Before I try
to come up with a workable design I'd like to hear from other Albergers
who may have already built one or decided against it.

This summer I had a local glass company make new port lights with 1/4"
(I did clear but it also comes in colored tints) using the old ones as a
template.  He did all eight for about $110 plus 7% tax.  I would be
happy to
ask him to make more if anyone is interested.
