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?

Hank,
I'm about to powder coat my Bomar Hatches and replace the lens. What did the powder coating cost? What lens did you replace with and where did you purchase from?

Bomar hatch

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.
