Hatch for Hunter 1988 Hunter 45 Legend

I recently bought a 1988 Hunter 45 Legend and just got home from the maiden voyage in the Sea of Cortez. Great trip but I discovered that the two hatches that are side by side in the Pullman berth are not operational. One has a hinge that is broken and the hatch is severely bent and the other is very tweaked. After looking at them they appear to be a one piece unit without a separate hinge that I can buy. Each hatch is about 14x14". (Not sure on exact dimension as I forgot to measure before leaving the boat in Mexico) grrrr. Can anyone help me to know where I can locate those hatches or what to do here. Thanks all!

Re: Hatch for Hunter 1988 Hunter 45 Legend

Contacting Hunter directly to see where they sourced their hatches would be a first step, if they can't help then Hatchmasters in Connecticut might be able to rebuild the hatch or point you in the right direction.
Have you tried a Hunter owners site?

There are also some really good threads in the maintenance section on repairing and servicing your own hatches.
Just use the search feature for hatches or hatch bedding, also hatch repair.
