C22 Front Hatch Replacement?

Hi all,

I'm about to buy a 1986 Catalina 22. Its front hatch (the one on the cabin top up by the bow) is made of fiberglass instead of lexan. I'd really, really prefer the lexan (see-through) front hatch.

Has anyone ever retrofitted an older C22 with the lexan front hatch? Is it possible to simply drop in a replacement or is the mold on the cabin top different for each hatch?

Thanks in advance.

-Bryan

Congratulations in advance on your purchase of your C22!

As you have probably noticed, the 1986 and later models have significant improvements over the older ones (I had a 1988)

You can get a replacement hatch for your boat, along with almost everything else from

Catalina Direct: Welcome to Catalina Direct Online



They also have a message board, and the people there are very knowledgeable about your boat.

Good luck!

Found my Answer

Thanks David,

I'm well aware the hatch can be replaced. What I was looking for was a way to retrofit the newer, Lexan hatch into the older, fiberglass hatch opening.

Turns out, there is a solution (for those searching the forum in the future): Cruising Concepts/Catalina Retrofit Hatch It looks pretty sharp to me! Certainly beats the old fiberglass hatch.

Glad to hear it. Let us know how it works out, and, please, post pictures of your new boat.

I do miss mine...
