Looking for circular closed cell foam for deckhatch.

I have a deckhatch with a seal that needs to be replaced. The seal is 1/2 inch circular cross section closed cell foam, possibly rubber? There is a semi-circular groove that the foam glues down onto, therefore a rectangular seal will not work. I do not know the brand of the hatch, only that it is aluminum and made around 1975.

I am having the most difficult time finding a source. Any leads would be most appreciated.

I bought some 3/8" for the same application from McMaster-Carr.

Google search for Holland Marine Products. He carries all different sizes of the round hatch seal meterial. Just measure how much you need. Order. When u install it just cut a low angle in the seal on both ends. Use the same glue for the splice. If you have any problems getting it let me know I have some for a project next winter that I can spare. Just PM me
