Re: Bomar Hatch Plexiglass Replacement
For the believe it or not file;
I found Lexan and the retailer cut it to size, and beveled the corners while we waited, here in Trinidad. He even had the Corning 795! All for the paltry sum of tt$477.00 (around us$70.00). Amazing.
So thanks all; we're water tight once again.
Just be sure your Bomars have the supporting cross bars under the lens. These are the hatches designed for polycarbonate. If they are Bomars initially designed for cast acrylic then you DO NOT want to step on the polycarb or you will likely wind up in the cabin. Green water can do the same. Polycarb is much less brittle but a LOT more flexible...
Seeing as you cracked your lens my guess would be the hatches were designed for cast acrylic not polycarbonate.
