I need to buy weather stripping for my boat doors, in the past I bought peel and stick from Home Depot and the adhesive was poor. Have any of you found the good stuff?

Do you mean 'hatch seal' ? Most chandlers sell it, rubber self adhesive strips, augmented by some tiny brass nails hammered below the outer surface.

Go to Amazon and type in "Trim-Lok D Gasket" and you will get a dizzying array of shapes. And, you will be able to buy in smaller quantities. These are exponentially better products than the wimpy foam types sold in hardware stores.
We used many of these styles building the San Juan lobsteryachts, though I think CR Laurence was the vendor, and they were in 50' to 250' rolls.
