I believe that you are replacing the original windows and the 2 things you mention are;
1. a sticky gasket to hold the plexiglass/ glass in place and
2. A rubber seal to keep water out.
You can order both from:
South Shore Yachts Inc.
Also see my thread about replacing my windows titled, "Yet another window issue... but different."
My only regret was not replacing all of the fixed ports last winter with opening ports.

Butyl tape might work.
What are you having the windows made out of? I wouldn't use glass, even safety glass. Lexan or plexiglass is most commonly used.

need advice port hole replacement
I have a 1973 35ft C&C that the portholes leak. I took one of the windows out this weekend and am going to have a local glass shop cut a replacement window to for it. The question i have is that on the back of the old window is some sort of sticky double sided plastic gasket and on the outside is a plastic gasket that goes in between the glass and the aluminum frame. Any ideas where to find replacement gaskets for these old windows or should i just use life seal to put them in place?
