Our windows that came with the boat have started leaking around the seals. Where can I get new seals for these windows manufacturer is unknown. They in our 1975 C&C 33. I believe they are replacements probably.

Re: Porthole Windows

A rubber company, o-rings from a hydraulic supply can be cut to size, a good marine (probably fishing) supply may have port gaskets in rolls. The gaskets are cut to length and glued to make a circle.

Re: Porthole Windows

There are outfits that specialize in gasket materials. Remove one of the gaskets, take it with you, then do as Lepke said, buy the material, cut, and glue. We tend to lubricate our gaskets with silicone grease. When/If they get grungy, clean, and re-lubricate.

Ours are similar and OLD. I cleaned the seal and then finger wiped with a coat of 3M 4200 black. The new surface seals well.

Re: Porthole Windows

Pretty sure it's a Beckson port. Newport Opening Ports by Beckson
If you can't find the gaskets, let me know, I'm going to make a Beckson order in a day or two. I can just add them on.

Re: Porthole Windows

HopCar, that would be great. I think I probably need more measurements though.

Re: Porthole Windows

Either Beckson or Gray. You can get Gray seals at Owner resources, parts, accessories, boats for sale, and more.. I just did.
