for some time my Lewmar portlights -old Standard size 4- have been leaking
and the lenses are totally scratched; same for the other 2 portlights (right and left)somewhat larger and aft of size 4 which I understand are custommade by Lewmar especially for Ericson.I replaced all four lenses and used the old gaskets, and they are still leaking. I found the english supplier for Lewmar gaskets whose e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org , however they only carry the standard sizes and not any custommade.
The other source of the leaking are the portlight cutouts which are too big for the portlight frames, such that the gaps between frame and cutout
can barely be closed and covered with butal tape and silicon which I tried
but it still leaks.
What is the answer, find someone who makes customized portlights
fitting the cutouts or make an additional aluminum frame larger than the
portlight frame to cover the cutouts.
Anybody there who succesfully solved that kind of a problem ?
Your answer is very much appreciated.
