Hatch Manufacturer Identification

Ahoy mates,

I need to repair two hatches on the salon roof. Problem is I can't identify who is the manufacturer or what model hatch they are.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Jack

Re: Hatch Manufacturer Identification

Not certain. Kind of need more info. What kind of boat? Who's the manufacturer? Any inside markings? Inside pictures?

Re: Hatch Manufacturer Identification

Your profile still says you have a 1984 Catalina 30... this (in your picture) is no such beast. So it would be helpful, as suggested above, to give more detail about the boat. Pretty sure I can tell you the hatches are neither Lewmar nor Bomar.

Re: Hatch Manufacturer Identification

Looking closer at the picture, it looks like the lens is not within a frame but hinged above the silver base. Is that correct or is the lens embedded in a metal frame that is hinged off the base?

Re: Hatch Manufacturer Identification

Thanks guys. I'll be back on the boat this next Wednesday. I'll check closer then.

@Gladrags1 : Yes, they sit flush but apart from the aluminum frame. They have plastic hinges and plastic spring loaded hooks underneath.

The boat is a 1978 Islander Freeport 36B. I've checked with Bomar and Lewmar. They don't look like anything they have available.

Re: Hatch Manufacturer Identification

If you don't mind me saying so, I think it is a waste of time and money to try to repair them. You would be much better off measuring the opening and replacing them with proper hatches that could take the force of a wave of seawater crashing onto the deck. It does happen and thin plastic lenses with plastic hinges are no match! Is this a boat you own or are considering purchase? Do you sail inland lakes? Those hatches are not made for blue water. Sorry but that's my opinion.

Re: Hatch Manufacturer Identification

@Gladrags1 : You're correct in that they are not bluewater, full sea swell wave resistant hatches. BUT, they're what I have at the moment and fixing the hinges with new parts fits the budget until summer rolls around when the El Nino rains have stopped.

If anyone else has any ideas as to the make and manufacturer...

Thanks
Jack

Re: Hatch Manufacturer Identification

you might try this company, Selectplastics ? Selectplastics. They are the go to people for hatch repair. One issue you might run into is the radius of the corners of those hathes are different than most so replacing them with another brand could be a big project, so repair might make sense even if it is expensive.
