Choey Lee window seal

I Need a little help with this one. I have an 82 Cheoy Lee 43' motorsailer, and am looking to replace the damaged window seals in the pilothouse. The windows install from the inside into a metal frame and seat against the backside of the outer ring and then the seal is installed. (see pics) 1st, profile and dimensions of seal. 2nd, window and frame.

1, Does anyone know where I could find this seal or a suitable replacement?

2, Any alternative suggestions using the same glass and frame?

Re: Choey Lee window seal

Your local glass shop should have access to industry catalogs or websites with hundreds of profiles to choose from. This is another source. https://www.mcmaster.com/door-weatherstripping/
It may be necessary to modify an exiting profile to suit your needs.

Re: Choey Lee window seal

Jim,
Thanks for the follow up. I live in a one-horse town, I checked with the only glass company here and they do residential glass they did not seem interested looking for a seal that is 40 years old. I have spent hours looking at images online without success.

Re: Choey Lee window seal

I noticed the manufacturer's info [faintly] engraved on the interior aluminum frames of the pilothouse windows on our 1983 Nauticat 43.

That led me to Hallberg Rassy that uses the same windows and sells the gasket materials.

Wishing you the same good fortune...

Cheers! Bill

PS: I have also had this gasket source bookmarked for some time, but have yet to order anything from them.

I would reach out to these sources:
Reflectwindow.com

Steelerubber.com



To aid in searching, most suppliers will refer to the product as a spline, rather than a gasket or seal, and glazing contractors generically refer to all such products as simply "vinyl." Also, they are usually grouped by the thickness of the pane they're installed with.
