Identify hatch type...

Can anyone identify what kind of hatch this is and possible size? The hatch I am questioning is the one in front of me closest to the mast, NOT the one between myself and the bow. I am asking because I have two of these that have broken hinges, which appear to be part of the hatch itself and not replaceable. Do I have to replace the whole hatch? If so, where can I get this?

Re: Identify hatch type...

It looks like the Lewmars I have. Look VERY closely around the edges of the lens,the numbers are really hard to see. Once you get the lens number you can go to Lewmar and buy them

Re: Identify hatch type...

Another common hatch manufacturer that might fit the picture is a French one, "Goiot" (Goïot Systems) which is found on many European boats.

Looks like Bomar hatches... they will have replacements hinges.

Re: Identify hatch type...

My guess is Bomar but hard to tell from the outside. Many look similar from the top. Can you take a photo of the latch on the inside? Older Bomars have a round black knob that screws down to hold the hatch closed. And to make it easier, it says Bomar on the knob, well if it is actually a Bomar.

Re: Identify hatch type...

Sure looks a lot like my obsolete Lewmar Ocean Hatches. You are on your own to find & replace parts. There are some aftermarket suppliers of copied parts & acrylic that you can google. I suggest you make your own bits if you are handy.

Re: Identify hatch type...

Thanks for the replies. Wish I could positively identify them because I am in Oregon and the boat is in the Sea of Cortez. It's about a 26 hour drive down there which I don't want to do just to identify the hatch. A better course of action would have been to identify them before I left the boat on the hard. I did look for a name, not intensely, but found nothing. If anyone can positively identify the hatch it would be very helpful.
If it helps, on the inside of the boat, the under side of the hatch has two black round knobs, about 1 1/2" in diameter on either side of the hatch with a steel rod running through them that you can turn to lock down on the rod and hold the hatch in a specific degree of open and there are two handles on the underside that actually lock the hatch down, they are L shapes handles/locks.

Re: Identify hatch type...

Paccrest:

FWIW, they do not look like Goiots to me, but I don't know what they are, either.

Perhaps you can get the info you need from Hunter? Or from someone on a Hunter forum with the same type boat as yours?

Good luck with the search.

Re: Identify hatch type...

Can you contact Hunter? They should have the info if it was stock to your boat.
