Replacement hatch

I need to replace the forward hatch on my Oday 23. I was towing it down the road the other day and through some freak circumstance the forward hatch unlatched, the wind cought it and then ripped it right from the I need to replace it.

I have no idea where to start in choosing a new one. Obviously I want one that will do the best job for the least money......clear hatch for sure. Taking the boat down to mexico next year.....please send me your recomendations!
I am looking for any crew openings in California. Please Pm

From the "I Heart O'Day's" website:

For parts that are specific to O'Day boats, the best source is Rudy Nickerson at D & R
Marine. Rudy was the materials manager for O'Day before they, like a number of
sailboat manufacturers, went bankrupt in the late 80's/early 90's. Rudy is a storehouse
of knowledge about O'Days and can most likely hook you up with the parts you need.
The website is D & R Marine -- you might want to give Rudy a call on the phone, it
has been reported to work better than e-mail.

When I was looking to replace the opening ports in my 1981 Hunter, I was able to order them from the manufacturer, Bomar.

Good luck!
