    Hi BobbN it possibly means it is not rubber! Nitrile used for non-stretch drive belts and O rings looks similar.
    I hope all is OK anyway.

    I have been using vaseline on my Focus 2 and 3 for almost a year now and it has not as yet affected the rubber at all. Before this I used vaseline on my DF65 and again no issues. Perhaps the rubber used is more like "o" ring rubber.

    But thanks for the reply I will keep an eye on it, luckily if the rubber does become porous, I understand replacements are available.

    Hi Bobbn nice instructional video. I do not agree with putting vaseline and rubber together as vaseline (petroleum jelly)which is a hydro-carbon reacts with rubber and makes it porous.

    I found this out to my cost with trying to get rid of a leak in a car sun-roof.
    Have you tried silicon grease in place of vaseline?
    Vaseline is OK with O rings as these are a nitrile compound.

    I purchased a Joysway Focus 2 RTR Yacht about 9 Months ago. I upgraded to a Focus 3 about 5 months ago and made a series of videos on how I prepared and rigged my boat. Both boats have been excellent and after preparation both have no leaks at all. Here is the link to the first of three videos.
