Hatch replacement

After drooling for a whole lotta years I've finally acquired a CE Ryder Quickstep 24—Hull #108. I hate to see that the boat has never been discussed in the forums (even given the Sailnet antics toward the old mailing list). Widget wants little more than some TLC—with the forward hatch being the outstanding wart on a hull that's otherwise excellent. It's a Vetus hatch, with broken hinges & lexan/plastic that is sufficiently crackled/scratched & dinged as to be screaming out for repair/replacement. Anyone tried to find parts for a 20-odd-year-old hatch? Or suggestions for replacements? I note that, ugly as it is, it doesn't leak a drop.
Also, how about that cove stripe? Suggestions on how to remove the now mostly white tape (mylar?) & replacement options? Anything would be helpful. And it would give us another post!
