    Anyone have a good replacement for the o-ring in the original Nautilus Lifeline Marine VHF Radio and GPS? Nautilus seems to only have an o-ring for their new GPS model and I can't find a source for the older model anywhere other than a site in Australia that doesn't ship to the US.

    I read elsewhere a vague reference to a "camera housing o-ring". But… which one? The o-ring appears to measure ~18cm and is roughly 1/2cm "thick" (top-to-bottom, not inside-to-outside, as it does not have a circular cross section). Should I just take it to an UW camera shop and see if I can find an o-ring that will fit?

    The radio works fine. But, without an o-ring to keep it water-tight, I won't be taking it on any future dives…

    Have you not e-mailed the company to ask about the o-ring spec? Chances are they'll tell you exactly the specifications of the o-ring. Hell, I've had manufacturers give McMaster part numbers for stuff even....

    I've sent a request, we'll see what I get back. Having companies discontinue supplying consumable parts in less than 3 years is not a good sign…

    Update: contacted Nautilus and was setup with a custom order for a few spare o-rings. Hoping they'll last me the life of the radio.
