Hi All

I'm looking for rubber fenders to use on my Gillian Knight tug  build,  I have 8 mm cross section o - ring material but really need 12 mm to look right (only need half a meter ) , does anyone know of a supplier please? 

Thanks

Try RS components supplies or any engineering suppliers and ask for Loctite O ring kit replacement seal of your size you might have to buy a Mtr . I thought there used to be a RS near the roundabout at the end of Clive Sulivan Way on that ind Estate that you see over to the left before you get to the roundabout .

Models By Design have 'D' section fender material (sold by the metre) I've got their 8mm , don't know if they do 12mm, check their website?

Hi David 481

The nearest rs is Leeds , maplins is just off Clive sulivan way , I have tried a couple of local  bearing /seal companies but no luck ..

Hi I'm sinking
I have spoke to Andy at Mbd  ,he said that the company who supply the d section cut it from round material but he didn't have any last time I spoke to him.

I will check the link  crossie ☺

Thanks for your replies

Do you have a marine supply store near you? Hatch seal rubber can come in that shape - we find it in our part of the world.
One make - TACO Weatherseal shows up in our area.
Also Aimee (posts on RC Groups) makes a number of different fender stIyles.

I'd have to look for her website but you will find it.
