Beneteau first 456 port rubber seal replacement
 
Hi all. I'm looking for a source(s) to replace the hardened, aging rubber seals on the port opennings on my Beneteau First 456. I haven't had any luck with finding a supplier in North America. On owner had suggested using a round rubber seal replacement which I haven't tried yet.

Most of Beneteau hardware is made by Plastimo, and if this is the case - you may be able to order from them directly (they have a UK distributor so its possible to speak English to them). I also had some luck with Beneteau office in US - but it is usually more expensive and takes time.

I think your ports opennings are Lewmar ones, and rubber seals are now replaced by silicon seals. Try Lewmar directly.

The seals are GOIOT. The portlights are the Tradition series and you can buy the seal from Marisafe.com.

Porthole rubbers first 456
 
First of all, it is fabricated by Goyot france.
Find a Goyot ditributer and ask for the rubber.
You cab buy it on bigger length so you just cut of what you need.
It is very easy to replace.
To cut out the old rubber which is a round rubber, use a small round spade to cut it fron the bottom.
The use a simple sealent like sikaflex and put very little in the frame.
Then bring in the rubber and make the connection on the highest point. Good luck.
