Portlight Rubber Seals

I have a 2004 Mainship RumRunner II 30' with 5 stainless steel portlights in the cabin. The rubber seals need to be replaced. U cannot find any identification on the portlight and Mainship is of no use now. Can anyone tell me where to find them?

Re: Portlight Rubber Seals

If you refer to the gaskets in the frame, you can find generic gasket material of the same profile and just cut to fit.

Might be a picture would be of help in that someone might recognise the make

Wefco Rubber Manufacturing Co., Inc. - Industrial, Marine, and Automotive Rubber Products

This may help if you cannot find OEM gaskets

Re: Portlight Rubber Seals

Try Downwind Marine in San Diego (Downwind Marine). They have rolls of many kinds of portlight gaskets to accommodate all the boats that pass through enroute to Mexico. I'm talking about those square cross-sectioned neoprene, solid rubber, round and oval sections, you name it. Call them and describe your particular cross section size and type of material.

Thanks to all. I found the Wefco material matched the original.
