1984 Sabre 28 Window Repair

Sabre 28 Lake Ontario, Shumway
Bought my first sailboat - Sabre 28 and working on some winter projects. My question is about repairing main salon fixed window (pictures attached). I need to replace the gasket. I have done some research and found some resources.

Link to owner that identifies a specific gasket to use

Gasket/part on Amazon

Before I order (100') I thought I would reach out to see if anyone has any thoughts...

Thanks!

Jim,
You’re on the right track. The gasket along with Dow 795 sealant should do the trick for the glass, set the frames with butyl tape.
Years ago, I rebedded all of the portlights on a 28’ Sabre.
