    Windshield rubber gasket and vent door repair -question

    I need to replace the long, black, about 1 in wide rubber gasket that sits in between the window frame. It is sun damaged, and water is sitting in there 24/7. I believe the gasket is shown as item # 9 in the attached pix. Anyone ever do this? Does this look like the correct part? Were you able to order from SR, or another vendor?

    Secondly, the vent window has alot of corrosion, and the seals are bad (salt water boat). When i looked at this, the vent window and glass piece above the vent window (#5 on diagram) appear to be integral to the entire windshield. Anyone ever tackle this? Did you scrape and re-clean the vent window in place, or were you able to remove the vent window portion and do this off the boat?

    Thanks, Bill.

    Are you talking about the gasket between the glass and the window frame or gasket between the frame and the deck?

    Either way Taylor Systems will be the source of the gasket(s)-

    I had a similar problem on my '01 410 DA. I ordered the aluminum center windshield insert (it slides out) and all the gasketing. All told, with me doing the work, about $1500 for the aluminum frame and and couple hundred for gaskets.

    Re: Windshield rubber gasket and vent door repair -question

    I am referring to the long pieces of black rubber gasket material. They are about 1 in wide, and each piece is about 4 ft long. You can see it from the boat exterior, as most of it is exposed. It is sun/salt water damaged, so it doesnt fit inside snugly, so water is pooling along the entire windshield. If you look at the diagram, i believe the gasket is noted as item #9 on the SR parts manual, but not sure. I am also wondering if anyone has any ideas on the vent window questions i had - thanks.

    I am still not positive what gasket you are talking about based on your description or the cross section on the small diagram you posted.

    Since you are saying they are 4 foot x 1in wide strips, that makes me think to are talking about the rubber gasket or seal that pops in the base of the window frame channel covering the mounting screw holes. No matter which gasket you need, the source should be Taylor Systems at the link I posted before. You will need to make sure and have a more detailed description or actual Sea Ray part number to cross reference when ordering though. Their ordering staff is not very technical at all.

    OK then those are easy to replace. They should just pull out and you can snap the new ones in. Taylor probably sells that by the foot. Be sure to order a little extra then cut them a little long for each section. You will notice there is room to tuck a little extra in the channel on each end, at least on the ones I have seen.

    That rubber piece is called screw cover.

    "Screw cover" and not "seal" is why we chose to leave them out. They don't seal out water just prevent you from seeing it. Also traps the water allowing it to lay around the screws we DON'T want to leak. I figured without the seal that area will dry much quicker. After the channel was cleaned out and polished a little bit did not look bad IMO. Keep in mind we have a polished windshield frame not a painted which might be helping the appearance of a no-seal frame.
    Plus the damn things are pricey for what they are.
