Is it a hatch or a port??? Hatches are generally larger, with an aluminum frame, mounted horizontally and open. Ports are generally smaller and may be framed in bronze, plastic, aluminum or stainless steel and mounted vertically, and not all open. Some ports, usually deadlights, are unframed and do not open.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Port parts

Ports, still getting back into the jargon. The port seal material is very brittle and I've seen evidence of leaks

And I also would like to upgrade the Hatch (only 1), but that will be later in the year,

Thanks

Fred,

I've got a '79 E27 and hitting the same issue. The seal between the frame and the cabin is perfect, but the rubber seal around several of the windows is leaking.

Mine are an aluminum frames, with a bezel on the inside the is screwed to the frame. The frames are each two halves with a rubber gasket that wraps around the glass.

It looks to me that the best option is to pull the full window and frame, separate the two halves and reseat everything. However, as the frame-cabin joint is perfect on mine, it doesn't make much sense for me to pull it. My plan is to cut the gasket out, clean the glass and frame then use NP1 caulk as a glazing material.

Here are a couple of pictures, the port window in the head as the most damage and I believe is beyond repair. Someone (a genius) used silicone to fill the drains and sitting water took out the seals on the sliding windows and corroded the alluminum. I will need to replace that one. The other ports are fixed, I am simply looking to re-seal them. Would anyone have a good source for the seal required? Also would anyone know were I can find the little plastic clips to hold the curtains in place?
