Danny I am sure A represents what Amel installed, but since apparently all manufacturers have cheapened the foam by lowering the density. This is the reason that I believe I would replace it with B profile. 

 

That said, I will wait for a final judgement until after Kent has talked to the manufacturer.

 

Kent, you should ask: Is B better than A in situations where the compression will be greater than 25%.

Kent,

 

If I am not mistaken, they have exactly what I think will work best, which is CACD240:

Here’s the site I was looking at.  These are truly half-round with base 1”, height 1/2”(not 1”).

 

 

I’ll contact them and Steve’s site to see if I can find 1” x 1” high D profile in neoprene.

Steve, 

 

Note that Trim-LOC says it uses EPDM Rubber. 

 

EPDM is related to polyethylene...I assume that this will be similar to polyfoam. The specs state that "compression Rating Recommended 25% compression for the maximum performance." This is where I had a failure with the gasket I previously used. If you notice the weight of the engine room hatch, it will compress the D Gasket to more than 25%, especially if the center hole is large.

 

Maybe the one that Kent found with a 3/16" hole will be the best.

 

 

It will take about 90' to do everything.
