Beneteau Lewmar portlight leak

The portlights are Lewmar old standard. They are still leaking after I replaced the rubber seal and the o-rings. I did everything BUT THEY ARE STILL LEAKING.
Any suggestion?

I have the same problem. The outer frame is 2 parts and there is a small piece of rubber between them - these seem to deteriorate over time. I removed the inner frams and had my wife pour water over the portlight with the portlight locked closed - with new gaskets. R\I could see the water coming in right at the location where the 2 pieces meet. The small rubber piece does not appear to be a spare part.

Remove the inner frame and see if that is where water comes in. I applied some silicon and that worked for awhile but erodes away - you can't put much on there.
