2006 48' Ocean Alexander Classicco port light

Hello
I am wondering if anyone has needed to replace the gaskets on their porlights and if so, where did they obtain them? Also, there are no markings on the port light so If anyone knows who manufactured them, I would appreciate the help
Thank you
Jon Wheeler

Hi Jon, I had to years ago. There was also another thread about this last year. Consensus was that it's cheaper/easier to buy a roll of gasket material of the proper profile than trying to go back to the original manufacturer to get replacement gaskets.

BTW, I used to live on Top of the World Drive. Nice memories!

As Mako advises, measure what you need and buy a length to suit of the
right size.
I bought mine from McMaster-Carr Supply. You'll have it in a day or two.
They can also provide any gasket cement you may need.

And Welcome!

Six years ago I replaced the plexiglass and gasket seals in my OA 54. I cut my own plexiglass and bought the gasket material online. I don’t remember where I got it from but it wasn’t hard to find. I don’t know if OA used\ the same ports in 2006 as they did in 1987.

If the gasket material is hollow, Downwind Marine, San Diego, has different sizes. It’s softer than the sold material. If you are looking for the solid material, I’ve bought it locally from a commercial gasket supplier.
