Red face Acrylics replacement

I need to replace the hatches and port light's acrylics on my sailboat sinc they are all discolored and crazed.
I've already tried mailing some stores in UK asking if they could do this job, but I got no reply from them.
Does anyone have any contact of someone who can do the job of cutting and refurbishing the acrylics on hatches.

Do a search for Maine Sail and acrylic hatch and you'll find the name of the company he recommends. Of course, if you're in the UK, you'll probably want to use someone there.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Acrylics Replacement

Thank you for your replies, Sailingdog and ZZ4gta.

I'm in Madeira Island, Portugal, and I could use any dealer from Europe.

Unfortunately i'm not able to buy goods from U.S.
