O' Day 28 hatch hinges

Might anyone known where to find replacement hinges for the forward hatch of an 1983 O'Day 28? I have looked online for several hours trying to find 3/12" long butt hinges to fit the same footprint but can only find 3" or 4" hinges. Tried DR. No luck.

Don't they are unique, you should be able to find something off the shelf if D&R can't help you
They look like this no?

Re: O' Day 28 hatch hinges

What brand of hatch? Lewmar or Bowmar or other?

I would contact Tony at Select Plastics - 877-874-3767 or tony@selectplastics.com - to get advice, and possibly new hinges.

Re: O' Day 28 hatch hinges

fwiw, I've been looking for an exact replacement for a hatch hinge on my Oday 23. No luck. The advice I"ve gotten from at least two sources is to stop trying. The suggestion has been to fill in the existing holes, find something that looks like the other hinge, then redrill new holes for the new hinge.

Re: O' Day 28 hatch hinges

Oh, the fiberglass hatches...

Perko and Sea Dog are possibly the brand that they used. I found the Gem plastic catches an exact match for the table and locker latches on my O'day 35;

Re: O' Day 28 hatch hinges

It is a stock fiberglass molded hatch with 3 3/4 inch long SS hinges. I have looked everywhere and cannot find a match. The hinges are ok mechanically but the chrome is worn off so their just ugly. The same exact hinges are on the anchor locker also. Thought about rechromming but the pins are welded so can't be removed and can't chrome if not seperate do. Only option I see now is epoxy holes and red rill which I don't want to do. Every notice that the smallest of jobs on a sailboat turn into a major battle?
