Don't forget the ring pliers!!!!

I tried to force that locking strip in with the marlin spike. My thumbs went numb for several weeks. After an hour I had 6" of locking strip installed. I trimmed off the excess and went home.

The pliers open up the gasket and it slides right in, sort of. It still takes some work. It took about an hour to finish the rest of the port.

Matt, Thanks for that "ring" pliers idea. I have to admit that I worked very hard with the finger stress to complete my eight ports below the toe rail. I still haven't taken on the the four higher portlights in my aft cabin. When I do, I'll have the pliers. Stewart

I just got the gasket in yesterday.....What type of glass did you use Plexi/Lexan/Acrylic and what thickness did you go with I have been to two diffrent stores and none of the people working there have heard of Marine grade glass. Is there such a thing?

Last but not least did you cut the glass with a hot knife or did you cut it with a jigsaw and round out the edges with a sander?

I can't wait to start this project I think it will make my boat look like a million dollars when it is all set and done.

The gaskets referred to in the posts above call for a 1/4 inch portlight. I've used the Lexan polycarbonate plastic which was cut with a saw and sanded. 'good luck with the project, Aythya crew

Sue,

I have an O/I 41 in Fajardo, PR with the same leaky port problem that you have. Wanted to find out how you came out with the Stanlock gaskets.

I have an OI 36, with the same port design.

Those ports have always struck me as being weak for offshore use. If I were doing an ocean crossing, I might pull the windows and gaskets out, and bolt pieces of Lexan over the openings, caulked to the hull.

I suspect that would be a heck of a lot more work than it sounds like.

Thanks for the post -- I may replace my own leaking-black-stripes-down-the-topsides gaskets, now.
