Re: Helms25 Window Gaskets

It would be my opinion that fixing your existing ports is the easiest and cheapest way to get the job done. plus its original if that matters to you. It doesn't cost a lot to get safety glass made to replace the plexiglass.
If I remember correctly, the removal steps were:
1. -Unscrew the aluminum channel that holds the window curtains.
2. - Unscrew the interior aluminum frame that pulls the exterior frame tight to the hull.
3. - Carefully remove the aluminum frame that holds the plexiglass. Hopefully the bedding compound loosens up easily.

Good luck with the project.
