Re: Bomar Hatch Plexiglass Replacement

The hatches do indeed have the two bars. I also doubled the thickness and had it beveled so it won't be a toe killer. It cracked because the Zodiac transom hit it just right. The old piece was just plexi, not Lexan, so we should be fine. 30 years in the sun and three years of the dink on top when sailing, I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.
Thanks.
