WTB 96 Challenger Joint Gasket

I've looked everywhere I could think of, following countless internet leads, and I am not able to find a replacement. I'm hoping someone here may know of a line on one, either new or used....? Or a way that I can repair the torn seal already there...

I noticed that one of mine was leaking last month when I launched it and pulled up to the dock at my friend's house (on the water). The bilge pump was definitely keeping up with it, but I wasn't comfortable leaving it in the water overnight with it leaking that quickly. I pulled it out of the water and put it back on the trailer, thinking I wasn't going to be using the boat that weekend. Once I figured out what part I needed, I called the local Seadoo dealer (Short's Marine) that was just a few miles down the road. They told me the part was discontinued and I was S.O.L. My friend told me to call the other PWC "place", just a few miles the other way. WMF Marine. When I called, the guy immediately knew what I need and said, "Yea, I have a bunch of those here". 10 minutes later, I had two brand new, in sealed Seadoo OEM packaging, gaskets in my hand. $25 each. Maybe not the best price, but I felt lucky to find them at all, much less at a place just 5 miles down the road! Even luckier that I was able to replace the one leaky one in about 90 minutes and was able to use the boat that weekend. I just recently replaced the other one because it was visibly cracked, but not leaking (yet). Give them a call and see if they have more available for sale! http://www.wmfwatercraft.com/

I do have a Canadian dealer that says he has one "on order" for me. Not sure yet what the results of this will end up being, but I'm staying hopeful. For now, it's looking like a silicon job may be in the future.
