Sue, I've come to the conclusion that the original gaskets were form molded in order to make the 3" radius turn at the ends of the port. I've completed the starboard ports and inserted the locking strip across the horizontal spans of the gaskets tapering them into the curves. I did use a sealant placed inside the ends at the turns just inside the lip of the gasket where it meets the lexan. I also placed a thin layer of sealant against the 1" edge of the hull before laying in the gasket and a dab of sealant where the cut ends of the gasket meet at the top. My stainless steel marlinespike was a better tool to insert the locking strip than the plastic tool sent with my materials. I am very pleased with the outcome both in looks and integrity of the fit. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

Stewart, we have just ordered the gasket material, locking strip and tool from Griffiths Rubber Mills and will receive soon. Thanks for the advice on how you installed yours. We will be keeping that in mind when we install ours. The people from Griffiths Rubber Mills were extremely helpful. Will send some pictures when we are finished. Have you made any of yours yet?
Happy Sailing!

Orionsue, 'best of luck with your project. If you run across another Morgan with the need for the whole length offer them my left over footage with yours. I'd sell under cost just to not carry my left over 40' around.

Thanks Stewart. Will keep you posted on the project and let you know with regards to the leftover gasket material. If you are ever within our waters (Ponce, Puerto Rico) make sure to let us know. Rick and I would be happy to meet you!
Happy Sailing!
Sue, S/V Orion

Morgan h-channel window gasket material

I've also been trying to find the gasket material for my 36 morgan O/I. I've concluded from Orionsue, and Captainforce that the manufacture is Stanlock, and Griffiths rubber mills is a vendor. Appreciate your posting the information because I hadn't been able to locate a vendor or manufacture. If either of you has excess gasket material you'd like to sell before I contact the vendor, I'd appreciate it if you'd contact me at 352-481-2175

I do not have the website available at this time. I did buy some excess marterial from Stuart for my OI33. The tool that worked the best for me was a pair of "ring" pliers. They are used to attach and remove locking rings. I got mine from Lowe's for $19. The greatest part is they have tiny rods to slide into the gasket material and you can reverse the pliers where squeezing the handle opens the jaws. Once you play with them in the store you'll say I got to have these!

Here's my row of new portlights. They're pretty much like the original, but with black instead of white locking strips.

I have been checking out the Stanlock site and I too would like to replace my scary looking port lights. Do you remember what the stock number is that you ordered for your boat I am looking at the different diagrams and i see two types that might work....I have a 33' 73 O/I any help you can offer would be appreciated your port lights turned out great..

Ashatsea, The invoice I have for the gaskets is the Stanlock product pruchased from Griffith Rubber Mills, P.O.Box 10066, Portland, Or. 97296, Phone= (503) 226-6971.
The item # for the gasket is 31513SL with the description SL-2026 1/4 x 1
The item # for the locking strip is 37653FTSL with the description
SL-1250 Lock Strip
As you read in the above postings, the gasket replaces the original well, but there is difficulty in applying the locking strip within the 3" radius turns at the ends of the portlights.
Here are views of my portlights before and after:
