Lewmar "old style" Portlight Seal supplier?

Looking for a supplier in the US for Lewmar "old style" portlight seals (pre-1998). I find them with google, but each vendor reports "Out of stock", including Catalina Direct and Defender. Need them for #2 and #0 types, or a roll that can be cut to length.



Just wondering if anyone has sourced these recently, or found an alternative gasket material?


Thx and Fair Winds..._/)...

Re: Lewmar "old style" Portlight Seal supplier?

Well, I got zero replies.

So, FYI, I found "old standard" Lewmar portlight seal material in the UK, an ebay seller called mainly-lewmar-spares. Ordered and shipped to the US. Cost: 15 BP/meter (.9 meter ~= 1 portlight). Shipping and tax is 46 BP. $250 for 12 meters.

Will report back if there are any issues.

Is it not possible to use butyl tape (is it between the frame and the cabin structure)


I did a google from Australia and got these links (incl. eBay)

Derfy is talking about the special tubular o-ring that fits between the moving glass and the frame. it has a "arrowhead" molded into it that locks it in the frame.
