One more question, assuming that the hot water trick works

Should there be a sealant or an adhesive, or combo of the two in a single product for the joint where the two ends of the gasket meet, assuming it's a solid joint, or should there be a slight gap there to be sealed? And is the H gasket likely to need sealant on both sides (hull and portlight)? When I removed one of each size to send to Hammerhead Nautical Systems for patterns for their replacement there was no evidence of any sealant in the original installation.
