where to find deck fuel filler cap sealing ring

hi, i have a beneteau 51 and i need a new sealing ring (kind of like an o-ring but fatter and not made of rubber, more like a gasket material) for the deck fuel filler cap. its about 40mm inside dia, about 5mm tall and 4mm wide with a cut off triangle kind of profile.

does anyone know where to buy, UK or US?

thx steve

Have you tried a Beneteau dealer, the one's in the UK I have found to be very helpful in getting hard to find spare parts.

Older Beneteau boats used Amiot deck fills.
I think spares can be obtained through

If you cant source something suitable cut a ring out of a piece of neoprene - take a little time and profile as required - it works just as well and lasts a great deal longer.
