No, as it is likely to break if something is dropped on it or if someone stands on it. For ports yes, hatches no.

Glass for replacing hatches
Is tempered glass (1/2") as good as plastic for a forward hatch light?

As you can see the ash looks much better than the crappy green..
$135.. for all 4 cut out off the old glass as a pattern..

2. Choose your bedding compound carefully. Although the glass should be impervious, some sealants will attack the adhesives used to laminate the glass, giving water a runnning start at getting in there. (Hopefully not an issue if you do step 1, but why tempt fate right?)
Hope it all goes well,
I have 17 rolls " don't ask i got a good deal and did not read the size of the auction till after i got them" It is a sealer designed to be put in to an aluminum frame with glass. It a polly based seal that seems to be more like a roll of puddy and was built for aircraft and boats. We did one boat with it and it works very well.. Now its my turn..
You install the seal then the glass and compress and the excess is forced out and trimmed with a x-acto blade. It will never harden and looks like a thick taffy??
