Hatch board replacement with saloon door

Where can I get stainless or aluminum saloon door hinges ? I want to replace my companionway boards during the fair weather summer with swinging saloon type doors. Both mating surfaces are 3/4". Ideal if the hinges swung both ways. Hinges are allowed to be bisexual without social repercussions.
There are times during the summer months where a man must make a quick get away and have the door close behind him.

Thanks in advance mates !

Isn't there a bit of a difference to a salon and a saloon? Which are you referring to? Or perhaps you want saloon swinging doors into your salon?

Just an old sailors opinion, hatch boards can be a bit of a pain at dock or in fair weather however, when you want to be buttoned up their is nothing better. If you want doors do it right and make them them so you can still install the boards, have it done right. This won't be cheap or easy. This is why I just deal with it, how hard is is it to remove them and put back? I have a canvass cover that snaps on when dock side and works for me. Your call and your boat just tying to help.

I agree that hatch boards are better during heavy weather. I am a decent woodworker with good tools that needs a source for a marine quality hinge for a saloon type summer door to the salon.

That is easy, From what i recall WM has them.

My boat they only swing one way with the way the PO made them. ie out! They also have an overlap so rain for the most part in the middle will not get in, and are low enough that the hatch slides forward, vs having to remove and slightly lower the upper board so the hatch goes forward.

Also, my swing doors are smoke plastic of some sort like the hatch, so they do let more light than the wood boards. This can be good, and bad!

You might also try larger single shop places like Fisheries, Defender, not sure about the sailnet store equal.

edit,

not sure if this search at fisheries will work using just hinges, but there are all kinds, some SS, bronze, plated etc.
son of a beech, oh well, sailnet store and words screwing up links! Go to Home Page I had 212 hits for hinges!

The question I have about the swing in-and-out is you won't have the water shedding channel anymore.. if your cabin/companion way is sloped at all then water ingress would be an issue - even with gasketing or seals, eventually.
