Bomar hatch for sailboats

Hi all,
I have a hatch 20"x20" that broke on my sailboat, and I am having difficult time finding this size in the market.
I found a second hand Bomar hatch that is missing the two locking mechanism. Where there is two holes in the dark glass where the locks used to be.
If I bought this hatch, would I be able to buy the locking pieces separately or not.
My second question is: Do you know any company that makes hatches size 20"x20" for the hole in the fiberglass

Lewmar, Maxwell and Vetus all do at least 1 style of 20" x 20" hatch. They were only the first 3 manufacturers that I could think of off the top of my head.

Re: Bomar hatch for sailboats

I just bought parts to rebuild my 30 year old Bomar ports. They were easily available from Bomar direct or most of the mail order sites like Defender. Might be easiest to go to the Bomar web site to identify the parts and get the part numbers and save money by ordering the parts from Defender.
