Hatch Gasket

Our CT 35' Sundeck Trawler has a swing out hatch window right in the center of the wheel house. The hatch is fitted with a groove to accept a gasket designed to go around the entire grooved hatch to waterproof the hatch when closed and dogged down. This gasket has, over the years, flattened out to the point of being useless. I've used the usual stick on gasket material to attempt to waterproof the hatch, but I still get leaks in a good rain. Does anyone know a source for this type of hatch gasket? There is no name on the hatch, and, being a Taiwan Trawler, it's an unknown manufacturer. If anyone can help with this, your karma level will rise accordingly. Mahalo.....

That's odd. The forum software typically will resize them automatically in my experience.

Maybe try a couple of Marine window seals/trims sites. They usually have drawings and diagrams to assist.

Google "marine grade, window gaskets". I've seen gasket companies with drawings and everything. Don't remember what it was called.

Thanks for all the input from all the Forum folks who responded. The good folks at "Clean Seal", Jeremy Klotz and Bill Dawson, dug into their extensive inventory and found a suitable replacement gasket for this hatch. They're based in South Bend, IN. and you can find them on the internet. I can't tell you how many resources I went through (over two years) before I found them and they sent a sample, based on my photos, which turned out to work quite well. If anyone is looking for any type of door or window seals or gaskets, check these folks out.
