Replacement hatch lenses / perspex

The Perspex lenses on my Lewmar hatches were very crazed after 30 years of Mediterranean and Caribbean sun. Two are large at 80cm square and two are more normal sizes. I found a company in Scotland that will machine up replacements when I cut out and sent them one each of the old units. They did a fantastic job at around 100 each for the large and 50 for the small. Cutting out the old and masticing in the new was a piece of cake. The company is QD plastics of Dumbarton, 01389 762377.

Re: Replacement hatch lenses / perspex

Thank you for the informative post. I'm sure some of the members closer to there will appreciate it. It is always good IMO to hear about businesses that don't have extortionate prices and do provide good service.

Thanks again.
