Hylas Discussion / Re: Deck hatch gaskets...
« Last post by Windswept on September 17, 2020, 10:47:54 PM »
Don - for the fridge/freezer door the flat gasket measurement is 3/4in x 1/8in and I purchased metric sizes from QL 19mm wide x 3mm thick. Our fridge/freezer doors have both round and flat gaskets. The round solid tubing was the same size as the port/stbd lazz, measuring 5/8in - I ordered 16mm. I assume the round gasket material was original in the fridge/freezer, but the flat gasket around the door frame may have been a previous owner addition.

Besides compression, these gaskets seemed to last the test of time so I just ordered from QL directly. Alternatively I'm sure you can save a bit of money by picking something locally.

We are currently in Redondo Beach, CA but Mexico bound in 2 months. Reach out if you're down this way.

Mighty fine Chris....Might do as you say....and look around here for gasket material. I emailed the below link, no feedback yet and will try Brians idea. Thanks Brian!!  Thumbs up regarding the "reach out". I found your steed on the web and sure like your feedback regarding your rig and your plan in two months. My email is donnie.c.chaney@gmail.com. Thanks!

Just checking in on your solar installation. We have the same davits on our H56 and are looking at similar install options.
Has the output been sufficient for your needs? Anything you'd do differently? Thanks

I go to Amazon, they have a lot of options and I've been able to find some that works just fine.  Your results may vary

Chris.....thanks heaps for the pic's! Well, couple of things...

In the fridge I have no gaskets on the doors (top or side) themselves. I only have gaskets on the fridge side. I'm sure that will be fine in Mexico right?? LOL

So, I can't read your mic. Is that fridge door (what your mic'ing 5/8"x 1/8"?
And I see by your itemized list....your also using a 16mm round for the fridge doors?

So you ordered round for all your outside hatches.....now that I look at mine, they were probably round as well, just look flat as they have been there 2 years longer than yours ;(

How do you feel your order is working as planed?

BTW: Where you at? Would love to see your baby. We're in the Monterey Bay/Moss Landing

Thanks
Don

PS. Edit: Just attempting to add the gasket material to stanchion bases and cabinet locks wihtin the same shipment. ;)

Few more pics... the last 2 pics with the flat gaskets are what I was referring to in that I don't believe are QL original.

I think some pics would be worth 1000 words. Most of our round solid gaskets have been compressed enough over the years that they leak. We were just trying to replace with the same thing. See attached.

Timely thread. We just went through this on Beleza, and in fact I was planning to start installing them today. Like you, Queen Long did not have a record of the gaskets used on our '02 H46 and we went back and forth with pictures. I did end up ordering direct from them. This is what we purchased and I noted below what each was for. Shipping charge was from QL Taiwan to west coast USA.

Description Total price
Yacht Part for Hylas 46-#44
Gaskets
1. Flat type - 19mm (3mm thickness) 5 METER, $7.00/m - $35.00 [fridge/freezer doors]
2. Solid tubing - 13mm 6 METER, $7.00/m - $42.00 [propane and anchor lockers]
3. Solid tubing - 16mm 11 METER, $7.00/m - $77.00 [port/stbd aft lazarettes and fridge/freezer doors]
4. Solid tubing - 19mm 3 METER, $7.00/m - $21.00 [aft steps locker]
5. Shipping Cost (By DHL) $95.00
Note: Subtotal $270.00

My guess is the first line item for the fridge/freezer door was not QL original installation, but it seems to help.

G'day Chris, yes, timely indeed  ;D Well, firstly, It was suggested using your #1 above for the deck lockers? I did a quick conversion, 3mm to be an 1/8 which is not nearly thick enough for the lockers. I see above, looks like they used the 1/8" for the freezer/fridge doors. I just looked at my fridge/Fz doors and my gasket is 1/2x 1/4"(1/4" thick). My fridge doors are ok...but, would not mind replacing them now.

So, the rest of your gaskets are all round?. If so, is your existing gaskets (deck hatches) flat? If the latter is so....how does the round work in the flat channles of the deck hatches?

Lastly, I'm thinking the round gasket for the aft steps would be slightly odd, advise.

Appreciate big time your feedback!!

Best

Hi, in looking for gaskets for the Atkins and Hoyle hatches and portlights on my 44, I found this source:
 https://www.canalrubber.com/full-round-closed-cell-neoprene-sponge-cord/
I haven't ordered anything from them yet, but maybe they have what you are looking for.

Thanks Norm, I' emailed your supplied link and will report my findings!
