Re: who made my hatch?

LOL, no doubt. I could make them from pure titanium, and still come out ahead. i guess i should get into the custom bolt market. in fact i could get a CNC 4 axis mill, and make millions of those bolts. Sell them at a $10 discount.

If only i didn't want to sell this boat when its finished, and buy a bigger one....

If it's pretty you're after, you could have those eyelet screws gold-plated. I think you'd still come out ahead.

Re: who made my hatch?

yes. i think eyelet screws will work. not going to be pretty, but i want to replace the hatch when i find one for $100 like i found a new series 60 lewmar hatch. i have been thinking of buying it for resale....

They must be custom-machining those screws. Even so, I would think you could manufacture (or pay for) something functionally equivalent for much less.

I came across their site. Stupid high prices. on my hatch is a broken pin. they only come in a pair, and cost $140.

and a plastic pin, $14. I also need to replace the acrylic, but i can do that locally. $140 for two bolts with eyes? Ouch. I suddenly wish I had Lewmar. Oh, and one of my support struts are not working, $400...
If forced to pay these prices, because I cannot get them anywhere else, I will replace the hatches. Am i wrong?

who made my hatch?

So my first question for the community is, who makes my hatches.

I need a few parts, I thought it was Lewmar, but no. It does not match any previous models. It has a simple flying bird marked on all the parts. The yacht was built in 1981.
thanks!
