Good luck!
I came across their site. Stupid high prices. on my hatch is a broken pin. they only come in a pair, and cost $140.

and a plastic pin, $14. I also need to replace the acrylic, but i can do that locally. $140 for two bolts with eyes? Ouch. I suddenly wish I had Lewmar. Oh, and one of my support struts are not working, $400...
If forced to pay these prices, because I cannot get them anywhere else, I will replace the hatches. Am i wrong?
