Acrylic in Houston area

I have a SUDDEN NEED to replace the glass (acrylic?) in one of my hatches. Something about a hard bottom dink dropping nearly 2 meters did not go on well with the old acrylic.... Any resources around Kemah that anyone can recommend?

Thanks!

Ohhh the hatch is an old Goiot hatch, not that it should matter too much.

Not much in kemah. You could try the glass place behind skippers. Can't remember the name. It's actually behind the old Okies liquor store. Yellow building.

Otherwise, try Regal Plastics in Houston. I know someone that used them and did well.

Thanks guys I will look into both! Need to measure thickness and dimensions. Right now the Dink is covering the hole.. Hopefully enough to keep 'er dry inside.

I have some acrylic window needs in the Kemah are too! Let me know what you find out, Regal Plastics is the only one I've heard of so far.

Re: Acrylic in Houston area

I jsut got off the phone with
Barry Johnson
713.944.6336
Therma mold

They where easy to deal with. Because of my schedule and living 3 hours away...I am going to make a trace of it and mail it to him. They where great on the phone. Going with my gut and moving forward with him. I got their # from Gulf Coast Composite


Hope that helps
