Got the bomar series 100 hatches ( 19 x7/16 x 19 x7/16) on sale at Fisheries Supply for 900 each they only had silver, I thought it would be anodized aluminium, but they are painted silver metallic. I can live with it.

When ever possible I do keep the head door open. Air can circulate between the dorades. No mildew here.

Hatch in the head is a great idea. Only place on the boat that mildews, even though she's swinging to a mooring full time.

Mrs.RD
The installation of the hatch in the head was surprisingly easy.The deck at that point is very thick,I suppose to support the mast,and requires a good strong saw and several blades.Once the hole is cut you want to seal all the exposed edges with epoxy.Then only the interior trim is needed,I made my own rather than pay the Lewmar price for a trim ring.The improvement in light and air is remarkable.
Good luck,

Wow, thanks! That is what I'm thinking to do. Did you have any surprises when you went to cut out the area.
Thanks

In regards to the hatch in the head-When we purchased NiftyNickers the head had a Vetus dorade and a small opening porthole.The head felt claustraphobic and airless.I removed the dorade and installed a Lewmar 10x10 hatch in its place.An amazing difference.Air and light,great!The dorade was then installed in the salon opposite the existing dorade providing more air in the salon.My wife's favorite improvement.

Our two Vetus dorade vents are in the saloon - port and starboard 10 or 12" aft of the bulkhead. The head has a small Bomar opening hatch with an inside spigot of about 10x10". Our boat has a number of other deviations from the brochure boats. I think all were factory installed.

Mrs. Rain Dog again:

Thanks Irish Eyes. I've gotta ask, was your hatch in the head a factory install? What size is it? Also a bomar?


Thanks,
Erika

Re: 19 7/16 X 19 7/16 Bomar 100 replacement options

My problems are not so bad as yours. All I have done is put stainless helicoils in all (or almost all) of the corroded bolt holes for the props and dab on some new paint. I think I have now done all four bolt holes in each of the two large hatches (saloon and vee berth) and in the smaller hatch (head). I've delt with plastic to aluminum joint leaks with windshield leak stuff in a tube from Advance and replaced the rubber gaskets on all three hatches.

After your note I'll pay better attention to the bubbles under the paint. The devil may be lurking there.
