3/8 by 3/5 opening port gasketing.

Looking for a source of packing for opening ports. Need about 16 feet.

Just installed 4 opening ports (15x7 and 18x7) in the cabin of LUCY and would prefer the soft style usually found on new ports to harder generic rubber.

The soft stuff requires less pressure for a WT seal.

TIA

Actually require 3/8 by 3/8 which is square and hollow inside to facilitate squeezing .

On good heavy duty ports that are not sprung , or round ports the square packing for shafts works well.

On our 90/90 the ports are WWII liberty ship 12 inch , with deadlights.

Std shaft packing works like a charm , but hey are really heavy duty!!!!
