Re: Porthole seals

Sorry to hear about yours. Ours is a treat.
Don't sail away before mid Nov. and we're meeting in Barra on our way south!
Thanks for the repair guy tip. Time allowing, we might get some things done while we're there.
Here's a pic of the hatch

Re: Porthole seals

Once you have the size and shape try :Grainger Industrial Supply

On my Atkins Hoyle rectangular portlites I used their 3/8" round at approx $16.00(us) for 25 feet length. The 25' did 10 portlites. Have had it installed for 1 1/2 years and no leaks. Yeah It sure beats the $40 per portlite that Atkins Hoyle wanted at the boat show">Miami Boat Show. Grainger offers round, square, rectangular, oval and other types and sizes. You can order on line and pick up at a local store or have shipped to you.
