Hey Tony - I THOUGHT you sounded "familiar". I contacted you a couple of weeks ago about seals
for my portlights
. I replaced the "glass" myself on all 12 last weekend. Cost was about $5 a piece vs $120 a piece from Lewmar
sources. Took about 2 hours to make all 12.
Removed the old seals
, dug out all the old crud and silicone, and put them back in. No, they don't leak. We sprayed them with a high pressure hose for quite a while, and not a drip.
However, I'm still interested in replacing the seals. Frankly, I can get the seals for less from WM or Defender than from you, which is why I didn't order them. I can also get them from the UK for about the same, including shipping
. I'm awaiting a quote from friend with a yacht service
business that can get me them at wholesale.
If you are still interested, I am too. Just about everything on the boat is Lewmar. 8 winches, 8 opening hatches, 12 portlights
