    We've had quite a few complaints about Lewmar port replacement gasket in the past 6 months, both Old Standard and New Standard ports. Lewmar says there have been no changes, but there sure seems to be something going on. Has anyone had any recent success or failure in replacing their port gasket?

    Thanks for your input!

    we replaced all 6 ports on our old seafarer in 1996 w/ lewmars. when we sold the boat 20 years later the ports were still in very fine shape w/ no leaks whatsoever. my guess is that they were 'old standard' .

    I bought a port gasket from SBO for the opening port in the head. I am sure it was a Lewmar. It fits well but was a bitch to install.
