    Default Black Plastic window trim

    We have a Hardy Seawings 355. looking to replace the black plastic strip that goes along the windows - see image. we split ours replacing the window locks. 5mm high, approx 2mm thick. the old one is currently riveted in place. we would need to drill a window lock hole in it so dont want anything too hard. Any ideas for a supplier or for a substitute.

    There is NOTHING half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats

    No idea what your seals actually look like but try Seals Direct. They have a wide selection and you may find yours in there

    it is not a seal it is a flange. there is a gap at the back where the window runner is, i will try and get a better picture, but it is rigid plastic and stands perpendicular

    Is it the horizontal strip along the bottom of the window? In your picture it looks bigger than 5mm x 2mm

    I believe it's a Trend Marine window (they used a similar system on Fairlines of the 80s & 90s) but the last time I tried to order parts I was told they no longer support products of that era . From memory, the black plastic strip is an L section and fixed with a pop rivet.

    Your picture is too blurred to see clearly.
