Hi Simon,
The leak appears at the base of the portlight but of course rain could be getting in anywhere around the edges and running down inside. Thanks for the tip about Seals Direct I'll certainly get onto that site.

Hi Terry,

Where abouts on the portlight is it leaking, if it is the rubber seal, a company called Seal Direct will be your port of call as they have many types of rubber seals that are fitted to port lights and will give advice on how to remove the old seal and how to glue the new rubber seal material in place afterwards.

You may have noticed that its rained recently. This has shown up a leak in one of our portlights. This one is in a Seawings but I have seen similar in other Hardy models. According to Rachel at Hardy Support they are YS fittings but apparently no longer available so no spares. Before I do any dismantling I'm wondering if any other owner has fixed this problem and if so how.
