    I have been slowly been fixing up my 1981 20ft Wilson Boat. It is about time to replace the window rubber that seals the windows in. I have tried many boat builders in my area and they are un-willing to give me any info.

    The boat is made out of 1/2 inch fiberglass plywood and 1/4 pane auto glass. I have seen some boats with the 1 inch rubber seals which look rather nice.

    I know I can get custom aluminum windows, but I don't want them I just want the rubber seal gasket..

    Thank in advance,

    Larry

    I would go to your local glass shop that replaces auto windshield and check with them. Make sure the product is waterproof.

    Rasoninc, Yes, I did that already and no one carries it. What is up with that?? The problem is the 1/2 fiberglass to plywood cabin to 1/4 inch glass.

    Delta Marine Industries, Seattle, WA.. Ask for Ed Vacura or Chuck Albertson. They will send you to the right place. I think the manufacturer is in Oregon but I couldn't come up with it. Sorry.

    I was trying to find him a local manufacturerer. I actually bought some custom white (I feel that black looks like 'coon eyes) from a plant in Oregon at one time. When Delta used to make charter boats, Goodrich or Goodyear or somebody such in Oregon made the rubber.

    Add automotive manufacturers and suppliers to your list. Many of those rubbers profiles are available, canoppy manufacturers also uses it.

    Mokaction and Apex1, The ruegg site only shows the size up to 10 mm for the plywood side, 3 mm too narrow. Sorry.

    Overall Width x Height: 1.0 in (25.4 mm) x 1.1875 in (30.2 mm)

    the glass on my boat is 1/4 inch and the cabin walls are 1/2 inch.. Perfect fit.. ;)

    Also needed 40 feet to do the job.. always nice to have some extra..
