It is perfectly common and often done, but you do need to use the right portholes and make sure that they have a safe freeboard of at least 40 centimetres or more. Weld-in rim types are best. These have a welded tapered flange that does not trap water, then bronze / brass fixed or opening toughened glass lights. See www.toplicht.de/en/hull-deck/portlights-hatches/portholes/2236/opening-portlights-weld-in.

Probably £1000 - £1200 apiece fitted.

We've found a humber barge we're interested in buying however it was really dark, which put us off. Was wondering if its common / ok to put port holes in the side of the hull to help?

And if so is this quite costly?
