Port hole gasket materiel

In my search for stuff to rebuild my boat with I came across a milk crate full of bronze, at the bottom of the milk crate was two 8" opening bronze ports, which were covered with a considerable amount of paint, including the gaskets. These are too old to have a manufacturer name on them. Does anyone know what I can use to make new gaskets, for the opening portion of the port.

As I Posted on the other site.

Good Luck.
It's kind of like tearing up $100 bills while standing in a cold shower.

About the best gasket material is square felt, if you can find it. It does not get sticky like the rubber stuff.

You can get rubber port gasket from Defender.
