Konsort Opening Port - Seals

Post by Tony Wardale » Mon May 14, 2018 8:15 pm

I looked at the rubber seals which are part of the 4 opening ports in my Konsort. They have seen better days.

Is there a source /supplier who I can approach ? There is a firm in the New Forest but the seals would probably have to be made up. The name of the manufacturer of the ports would also be helpful.

Hi Tony,

The firm you are on about are called...SEALS DIRECT (Tel No 01425 617722) they are a New Milton company and are excellent to deal with. I have just done my portholes on my Pentland and I ordered ENC85 which is expanded Neoprene Cord 8mm dia (which should fit your portholes but check) and A139 which is the glue to make them up and stick in the recess on the porthole. Making them up is very easy to do and Seals Direct will always advise where necessary. For 6 portholes the total cost was £18.14 inc VAT. (and no leaks!!)

Hope this helps.

Hi Steve

Thank you for that info and the details, I will get in touch with them . The ports do not leak but I am anticipating they will before much longer !


Yours aye

Tony

I think Trafalgar Yacht Services can supply the actual replacement seals. Probably expensive though and a suitably sized rubber strip will do as well from seals direct.

We make up suitable seals ourselves (see website under Portlights and Hatches). £3.50 each

When looking for seals for my Gebo opening portlights, Ocean Chandlery at Thornham marina had them in stock. A sample of the old one is essential as there are a number of different cross sections. They were very helpful.
