Window Tracking Wanted

I'm replacing a sliding glass window on my 41' PT Europa Trawler that has delaminated .
$100.00 reward to anyone that can find
me about 15' of the flexible window channel part number Y-577 or STA75000118.
This channel was manufactured by Standard Products until it discontinued a couple of years ago.
Surely someone somewhere has some surplus left. I can find the rigid, but I need the flexible so I make the radius turns. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Greetings,
Mr. f. Don't make too much of my free advice. Mr. P's $100 would be wasted on me. I'd probably just spend it on fast women and get myself in trouble, yet again...

I also hope he finds his tracking...

Greetings,
Apologies to Mr. P for the thread drift but I should clarify, even if just for Mr. A. Whilst Mr. P's magnanimous offer of $$ for information was quite generous I did not feel obliged to accept because:

1) Mr. P., I'm sure has better uses for the $$. For example...

-fuel (@ aprox. $2/gal is 50 gallons which @, say 2gph is an extra 25 hours @ 7kts is 175 sm.)
- Ice Cream (Country Maid on sale now @ Piggly Wiggly 5 for $5...16oz size...

That's 100 lbs!!!! of ice cream...can you even imagine 100lbs of ice cream?

-$100 worth of whimwhams, perchance?

2) This is just not done on TF.
3) I've already alluded to past...ahem...interludes and I'm getting too old to fight off the ladies.



So thank you in any case for your kind thoughts...

Thanks for the information. I've ordered a couple of different kinds that seem to be really close to what came off the boat. Hopefully one of them will work. I'll buy you a cone of ice cream if we cross paths.

Last time I asked this forum about "glass run channel" (what the cognoscenti call it) I was told CR Lawrence. However, they're a wholesaler and won't deal with us common folk. They put me on to one of their retailers: https://www.dkhardware.com/

I only need the rigid stuff and I pushed it on down the priority list.
