It really pays to research what you need

So after a phone call to the maker of my hatches and port lights the gasket kits average 50 bucks per hatch and 3 tubes of sealant at 30 bucks per tube for a estimated cost of 1340 if i do the work myself. Ouch. So i did some research and found the gasket material for 35 bucks for a 100 foot roll and the sealant for 9 bucks per tube. that is about 8% of what the hatch company wanted to charge. Oh well i'm happy as I can be about the money savings and next week I am going to get this project done. One more thing off the list refit budget not taking the hit I thought it would. Apparently the gasket kits are precut to length but for over 1200 in savings I think i will be happy to cut them myself.
