keel gasket

Need to replace the keel gasket. Any ideas on where to get one or what works best in place of the original?
Thanks!

I used neoprene.  Old wetsuit material.  Thinking it was 6mil.  Made a template (4 bolts) transferred to the neoprene and cut it out.  Enough stretch to do one piece and stretch it over the top plate.

3 years and working fine.
