Replacement Portlight Gasket on Bristol 81 41.1

Hello folks,

I have been going about these last several months making some upgrades1981 Bristol 41.1. I am at the port lights. I need to replace the gasket, but have been unable to identify the replacement extrusion. There are no identifying marks on the portlight itself.

Can anyone offer any help?

Thank you!

Measure the width of the gasket and order accordingly. They are sold in long lengths and cut to fit. Be sure to put the seam at the top of the port light. It's been a little while since I ordered the stuff, but I believe I got it from Jamestown Distributors.

EDIT: Actually, I ordered it from Defender. Search for port gasket.

This was great help. I was able to find replacement gasket for these Bowmar hatches from Defender.
