    Replacing some rubber seals. Do most engine room doors have rubber seals on them to keep air, etc. out or are they not sealed?
    Is there a standard size rubber gasket used on the cockpit freezer base?

    Cockpit freezers always have a rubber gasket, otherwise if ambient air gets in there, it will ice over and such and not be able to maintain temperature properly. Yes, most engine room doors on your type of boat have a rubber gasket so that water doesn't get into the engine room, especially if a hot dog captain floods the cockpit backing down on a fish. If I remember correctly, water would pour directly on top of your generator if that scenario happened.
