Sliding window channels

The sliding windows in the salon slide in these fuzzy looking channels. Except thgat a lot of the fuzzy has worn off or been piled up in one corner. Has anyone replaced these? Can they be replaced?

We've replaced most of ours in our GB. But a GB has built-up windows that are easy to overhaul. Don't know what yours are like. We get our new channel fromm Fisheries Supply here in Seattle. They have an on-line catalog, too, with the channel in it.

Are you wanting to replace the entire channel or just the felt?

Thanks for the responses. I would just like to replace the felt, the actual window frames are aluminum.

If you know the manufacturer, check with them.
Maybe some boat builder would know where to get replacement felt. I doubt that the big box marine supply stores would carry that.

You can buy replacement felt from the same sources. The metal will have to be absolutely clean for it to stick though.
