Hatch Replacement on C&C 25 mkII

Hi all,

I am looking to fix my leaky deck hatch on my 1983 C&C 25 mk II. I have decided that I would prefer to replace the whole thing with a modern Lewmar or Bomar hatch since the existing hatch is generally kind of crappy looking. My problem lies in the fact that from what I can measure the outer dimensions of the hatch are 20 1/4'' x 20 1/4" and the cut-out is approximately 19"x19" and I can't find a manufacturer that has an appropriately sized replacement hatch. Has anybody else replaced a hatch on this era of C&C? Are there any good methods of getting a modern hatch into the existing hole? What kind of options are available to me if not? I've only had the boat a year and this is the first major project that I am undertaking so forgive me if I'm not all that savvy in the field of boat repair (though I'd like to be). Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
