FYI if you haven't done the job yet
I replaced my Cal 29 hatch. I found a good fit at the West Marine surplus store in Oakland CA (since closed). Hatches are pricey bought new but you can often find good deals on new stuff at the consignment stores.
For my project I had to make an adaptor plate, like a picture frame out of stainless. The other thing I had to do was to grind down the ridge that goes aroud the hatch opening so that I had a flat surface for the aluminum hatch. Then I had to fill the foid betwen the deck and headliner with fiberglassed mat so that what I was bolting thru was solid. That done I had sand and level the new surface. It came out prett good
