If it is the flat type then you can make you own from either rubber or cork I would think.

Flat type Barry is just a flat piece of rubber cut to the right shape - bit like a head gasket on a car.

I are assuming the leak is between the bowl or pan and the tank???

Barry,

The bottom seal you are talking about is a specialised fitting so I'm afraid Pauls suggestion of making your own will not work.

It is made of a softer type of rubber seal more like a sponge than a head gasket as it has to have a degree of flexability.

The bolts will not drop into the holding tank they will come off in your hand.

If any of these bolts are damaged then I'm afraid I did struggle to find the replacements for them and ended up modifying some readily available ones from a DIY place myself. (10 mins work with a metal file)

I would recommend a good pump out and flush from one of the bigger yards before starting work on this job as you will be in very close proximity to an open holding tank. YUK

As said in the previous post I got my seals at Norfolk marine Wroxham.

I did cause a bit of a stir when I walked in one fine day with a rather dirty smelly worn bit of rubber seal in a plakky bag and asked for a replacement and did they want me to get it out of the bag to show them :naughty::naughty:
