Cool Newport 28 MK II 1985 leaky window

My Newport 28 MK II 1985 sail boat leaks around the windows. Looks like the rubber seal shrunk and became hard and has a few gaps between the glass and the rubber. The alum frame looks to have a good seal to the fiberglass. I received a quite for $452.00 to repair. The fix was to remove the rubber seal and install some kind of sealant instead of the rubber. I prefer to install a new rubber part without removing the alum frame but am told the rubber part isn't available. Any help would be appreciated.


Irvine, Ca
