That might be the rubber seal that goes on the top of your main furling motor. That is, if you have the 54 vertically mounted main furling motor, which with hull #98, I suspect you have this seal. Early model 54s had a horizontal main furling motor. BTW, when these seals leak, the incoming water will ruin the motor. The rubber seals probably have a life of 2-4 years. That life can be prolonged with a coating of Trident brand Silicone Grease (I don't recommend a substitute for the Trident brand...you can find it in dive shops.
