Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Companionway sliding door gasket deterioration

Joel F. Potter <jfpottercys@...>

Hello Bob and Laurie,

I am all but 101% sure that the rubber seal strip used at the base of the
companionway slide board is the same one today on the Super Maramu, as it
was on the Maramu. If you describe it as above when inquiring of Amel, they
will know what it is. You can email your request to Colette at
in the Apres Vende Department. She speaks English at least as well as I do.

An alternate source would be a GOOD automotive trim/upholstery shop. I have
seen window seal strips (such as on my 1996 Chevy Impala) that look very
much like what you seek.

Good hunting.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Companionway sliding door gasket

Shearwater is a 1984 Maramu, and we're undergoing a huge refit, one
very small part of which was replacing the companionway vertical
sliding door. The problem we've encountered is the deterioration of
the rubber gasket which goes along the bottom of the door sill, so
water running down the outside of the door goes aft over the sill
into the cockpit, rather than into the door's "pocket" and thence
eventually into the bilge. Any idea of where to get the same or
similar gasket, short of trying to deal directly with Amel? Our
prior efforts with them have been frustrating due to the language
barrier, as well as contending with US Customs.
