Viking inspection port o-ring measures  Bottom

  • Hi, I need to replace the o-rings of 4" Viking Marine inspection ports, they are out of stock at Murrays and didn't find them elsewhere. Anybody has measured the o-ring diameter and section, to find an alternative? I'm away from my boat, Thanks
  • Did you try Annapolis Performance Sailing

    I read they dont make them anymore (and i believe what i read on the internet...)

    Found some here, in Switzerland, and ordered the 6 units they had in stock.

    I live in Chile, so not too different than ordering from the U.S.
    Interesting site, i got some other stuff too

  • Go to McMaster Carr, buy some linear o-ring stock, cut and glue the ends together. Very easy and no need to chase down a Viking specific o-ring.

    I was going to recommend Granger of The O-Ring Store.... but I saw that APS had them.. all you need are the measurements...

  • Here is what I use. I purchase them at a local industrial supply house, buna, and replace them every year. As a tip, when you're not sailing, loosen them a bit so that they're not compressed all the time and loose memory/seal. Also inspect and clean them periodically, sand/dirt etc. doesn't make fot a good seal:
