replacing Bomar hatch in 1979 Seafarer 23

Hi,

I need to replace Bomar hatch on my 1979 Seafarer 23. Unfortunately, I am having hard time finding a replacement in part due to not finding a serial number on the hatch. Has anyone replaced that hatch?

Dimensions the best I could measure are as follows:

Cutout size: 17 1/2 inch (width) by 14 5/8 inch (length)
Flange: 20.5 inch (width) by 17 1/4 inch (length)
Actual cover: 20 inch (width) by 16 3/4 inch (length)
Radius of corners: approx. 3 inches

Thanks.

Rafal Ablamowicz

I found a hatch that was a half inch narrower in a salvage place. Then I reduced the size of the port by 1/4" on each side and got on with the program.

I had my hatches on my Irwin refinished. Removed the old acrylic or plexiglass or whatever it was. Had the frames sand blasted and then powder coated. Any new acrylic installed by a guy who specialized in replacing the hatch panels. Replaced the old hardware with new gas struts. Turned out better than purchasing new ones.
