Classic30 Cam, the base/frame wouldn't need to be fibreglass - it would be a lot easier to build up in timber (mahogany?) and simply sikaflex & bolt to the cabin top.

It is not a difficult job for the home handy-type and a varnished frame might look quite smart in contrast with the gelcoat if the OP so chose.

(Apologies if I seem biased - I have a wooden boat! )

camaraderie I assume the hatch looks like the one on this boat.


I think the only solution will be to have a fiberglass base built up so that you can then install a traditional flat lexan hatch on top of it.

Kris,

If I understand your question correctly, you are saying that the curvature in the top of your existing solid fibreglass hatch matches the camber of the deck or coachroof?

If so, the following company offers to fabricate replacement hatches that are cambered to your specification. There are a fair number of Sabre 28s, so it wouldn't surprise me if this has been done before, though not necessarily by the company I link to below. To improve your internet search results, use terminology like "cambered hatch", "replacement", "Sabre", etc.

PBzeer Is the arc to maintain the shape of the cabintop? If so, you would probably have to build up the mounting area to keep from having an indentation.

Hello All,
