We have several lazarettes on our 2005 Voyage 440. The original gaskets are no longer maintaining water
. They were dimensionally and visually similar to the Trimlok 2828 D-profile EPDM foam rubber seal so I carefully installed that on a forward deck hatch
. I followed their recommended compression
height and slowly increased the compression
but they never sealed out water
completely. I believe they were too soft. Getting their application help for a small quantity purchase
Sources like West Marine
and Defender have very limited offerings.
I have searched had little luck finding a good source for replacing these critical gaskets. Any advice
would be appreciated.
