Anyone know what kind of ankle and wrist seals go on an O'Neill Boost? I'm thinking about trying to replace them myself, but I don't know if there are different styles or sizes. Doing it myself won't save me much money as O'Neill will do it for $25 each, but they tell me they have roughly a 4 week turn around time and I don't want to wait that long. If I by seals and figure out how to glue them myself, I can have the suit back in the water in just a few days.

(BTW - if you buy a used drysuit, do a better job inspecting the seals than I did. I thought I had been very careful, but I did it outside around dusk and the lighting must have been worse than I thought and I missed some small cracks that cause the suit to leak. Luckily I got a pretty good price that even after paying for new seals I'll still be at almost half the cost of a new suit.)
