Rubber seals for hatches - where from?

Anyone know where I can get replacement rubber seals for those smallish plastic hatches that are fitted on RIBs. They fit in a groove in the base and a ridge on the lid is supposed to seal on to them. My seals are squashed, and the hatches leak badly. Diameter is about 5mm. Thanks.

Not sure which seals you're referring to but is it a large "O" ring? If so you can make your own or get them made.
