Gasket material for Marine Trader port lights

I'm having trouble locating gaskets for the ports of my 1985 Marine Trader. Information or suggestions are appreciated.

Previous post from La Bomba regarding same question,

I recently bought seals, screens, knobs etc from Atkins and Hoyle. The sell seal by the foot in different sizes and a special adhesive as well.

I know a few people that have used clear vinyl tubing that fits the groove with good initial success.

But .....I think bronze ports get pretty hot in the sun so I wouldnt expect the tubing to have a long life. Never been around them long enough to hear long term successs.

But in a pinch or if willing to replace it every other year or so, might be worth a shot. I might try it next go around as even the gaskets I got last time were pretty dang expensive and tend ti stick if not opened every couple weeks.
