The rubber seal around one of the portlights has come off and I don't know the proper cure for it. I don't even know how it was attached in the first place. Glue? Glue would be the way I would try to put it back but would like to ask if anyone has solved a similar problem before or has a better suggestion.

Had the same problem 2 years back. I used glue, but don't remember the type. Just put the seal in place with the glue and closed the portlight to get some presure while drying. Sine then it has been in place. However, not longer allowed for kids to pull things in and out of the portlight

Contact glue didn't work but I have friends that have recommended this: http://www.hatchmasters.com/product_info.php?cPath=205&products_id=180&osCsid=356998c896a013e73e2de0e2bec233c3. I might try it and will let you know if I am happy with it.

After having been in contact with Lewmar, this is the seal I need: http://www.lewmar.com/products.asp?id=8728&lid=24807. It's quite expensive, though.

Are you sure the portlight is by Lewmar? And will the portlight not come apart to enable you to relocate the seal and rebuild, as the ones on my 341 do? Mine are a dutch make and replacement parts are a lot cheaper, I also believe better quality than Lewmar. I don't have the details with me but I will be down on BH later this week and can send you the details if that helps?


Cheers,

I am sure that the portlight is by Lewmar as it is printed on the acrylic. However, I am not sure whether the seal needs to be replaced but that's what I am told. My thinking is that in ten years time the rubber gets dry but I might be wrong.

I would suggest "automotive trim adhesive".  It is used to secure rubber window seals on automobiles and should hold up to weather and salt.  It should be easily available at most automotive stores.  Sold in squeeze tubes, black, and quite inexpensive.
