Re: Help for DIY fiberglass hatch cover

I found a Lewmar hatch for my Cal 29 that was a close fit at a West marine surplus outlet in Oakland at about a quarter of the list price. a consignment store will likely be a good source. Took a bit of fiberglass work to strengthen the deck area and I built a SS adaptor plate but the result works well and was low cost.
