pirate Lewmar rollstop hatch series 70

Hello Cruisers!
I have a cracked lens on my lewmar rollstop, or roll stop, hatch series 70, on my j130 sailboat, and I am looking for a replacement lid specifically, but we will buy a whole used hatch if necessary, to obtain the lid. Or we are looking for someone in the baja mexico area, or puerto vallerta, who could replace the lens, or acrylic clear part of the hatch, in the one that we have. I am looking for any solution or recommendation on how to fix this part.
Thank you
Aline

Re: Lewmar rollstop hatch series 70

Anyone that has a "water jet" cutting machine can make you an exact duplicate.

Not sure what is available in Mexico, but there are several companies in the US that have them for making custom windshields for cars, etc as well as general production cutting.

Tolerances when cutting with a water jet are extremely close (in the .005" range I believe). I have had all sorts of material cut with one - safety glass, stainless steel, aluminum, wood - so plexiglass won't be a problem.

I think there is a company back East that overhauls Lewmar hatches and has replacement "glass" available. Their prices seem a little high to me, but they have them as more or less an "off the shelf" item.

Good luck!
