Hi, I only did one hatch so far as the other is in good shape except for the Lexan. I will wait on doing this one until after the summer season.
The powder coating was $150. I could not remove the support struts and they painted them white as well (looks good). The bolts would not budge and I did not want to risk breaking them.
Be sure to remove anything plastic as it will melt when the hatch goes in the oven.
As fas as Lexan, I purchased the dark tint from an eBay seller. I purchased two 2 foot by 2 foot pieces, 3/16 " thickness ... I believe it was less than $50. Let me know if you want the name of the eBay seller --- send me a PM.
I then had a local glass shop cut the Lexan --- I brought them the hatch and the Lexan. They charged $10.
I used blue painter's tape on the outside and inside of the hatch, applied the Dow adhesive ... and then placed the Lexan on the hatch.
I placed bar bell weights on the Lexan for one week. At the end of the week I removed everything --- tape and adhesive backing without any problems.
Two weeks ago I installed the "new" hatch with a new gasket I purchased from West marine. No leaks!
I hope this helps.

Greetings all ...
Am having a difficult time finding a place in Atlanta that does sand/bead blasting and powder coating. Any suggesions?
For the Lexan ... is it 1/8" thick?
I have found a source for the Lexan ... but also am reading about Makrolon - color Black - anyone have any experience with this material?
If I choose Lexan - Graylite Dark Tint ... any thoughts?

Hi Ted, thanks so much. I will be working on the two hatches next week.

here is the product info page on GE Ultraglaze.
and here are the instructions that Bomar sent me on reglazing tips.

Thanks for trying to fix my link. It appears that the use of the literal "hatches" in my URL conflicts with sailnet's attempt to create hyperlinks into their online store, messing it up. I just fixed my post so as to point to my list of various projects, requiring one more click once you get into google groups.
BTW - nice boat name for a nice boat!

Here is the link to a page where I documented my various projects on our C37. Then click on bomar hatches link
"Pages - PSC Owners | Google Groups"
I bought the Ultraglaze from Bomar since they were good enough to send me tips on the rebedding. I have that posted on the above page as well.
While you are at it, check the SS bolts where they go into the AlMag cast frame. I had considerable pitting, so I switched to zinc plated hardware and also used TefGel for good measure.

Hi Ted and thanks.
Send when you can. Source for the GE Ultraglaze? My local hardware store does not have it.
