    Sliding Doors & Windows Flocking Weather-stripping

    Does anyone have any suggestions for replacing the "furry" weather-stripping on our 4788 sliding doors and windows? I have spent this winter installing a diesel heater (will gladly share pics of the ...VERY extensive install...). The Pilothouse doors and windows continue to be a constant source of cold air infiltration - we need to insulate them better against air ingress. Would be most appreciative of any advice from experienced DIY's to aid in planning next phase(s)!
    Cheers

    The window fuzzies are available from perfectfit.com in Kent, WA. I’m not familiar with the door fuzzies, sorr.

      When we rebuilt our doors in the pilothouse, I went to a local commercial window shop and talked to them. There are many options out there, depends on the door configuration, the amount of gap, and the consistency of that gap. The ladder is the killer. It is difficult to find a good seal concept with inconsistent gaps to fill.

      I would take some pictures of your door, where you think the seal might go, the gap you have to deal with, etc. Take good measurements with the door open and closed. This was the killer with the 4588 wood rear salon framing. The gaps change from top to bottom and as the door moves from closed to open.

      I know of one person that had them come out and worked on all of the door and window seals on the boat, including the windshield seals. It was great afterwards, but the cost was very high.

        For my 4087, I used Stan Pro 75000638 (AS1528) or Austin Hardware 800 821 3520 to replace the window run channels. The P/N for your boat may be different, but at least you can look at the crossections they have an determine which ones.
