I suppose the silence means no one has suggestions. But here's a couple. Take a couple of closeups and see if an outfit like West Marine has anything like what you are seeking. Also, I have long been a fan of Blaine Windows for window and door hardware/repair. Their stock of stuff is wide and deep. Send them the pic , perhaps with dimensions. The seals may also turn out to be a standard Home Depot gasket item. Good luck

If your concern is that the rubber is leaking at the glass/ frame joint, there is a product out there that seals it beautifully. The only problem is, I can't for the life of me remember what it's called. It's a white liquid that dries to seal the joint.

As I recall, it was made in England.

Can anyone recall what that stuff is called?

(Jeff..our brains are aging together) I think the very good leak sealer Jeff mentioned is Capt Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure - it's a thin (not viscous) liquid that finds its way into tiny openings and seals them effectively. A little bit goes a long way. Widely available. Google it.

..."Capt Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure"

That's it! Thanks, Joel. I was wracking what little is left of my brains.

That stuff works very well at sealing windshield leaks. Sometimes it takes a few applications, if the gap is large.
