EPDM Lewmar port seals (replacement) for leaking seals

Can someone recommend to me a place to buy seal material that will replace my port seals in my 1996 Hunter sailboat. I can buy the seals already made or buy the material. I just as soon buy the EPDM gasket material and cut my own. I am having trouble locating this material.


Thanks

I just bought a square yard of 1/8" EPDM (sh.60) from:

..very quick and easy, paid over the phone and stuff delivered in a few days!

I looked at their catalog online and it shows seals hollow inside not solid like the current Lewmar port seals which are solid.

I was recommended to them at the boat show">Miami Boat show. I just wrote Hunter and Lewmar.

At West Marine they give sizes 0-5. I have measurements not 0-5, what does that mean. Defender is the same.. driving me crazy.
