Flush mount deck hatch

I'm debating replacing my old Lewmar Super Hatches. The Lewmar Ocean series is the only one I can find. Is there anyone besides Lewmar supplying flat mount hatches?

Thanks guys. Some quality stuff there. Too bad it's so pricey. Looks like my budget restraints will dictate Lewmar again.

Nothing wrong with Lewmar. The Ocean Series is a great product.

Re: Flush mount deck hatch

You're right, the Ocean series is a good hatch. I'm just annoyed with Lewmar because they don't support my Super Hatch series nor my Wave Grip winches.

Re: Flush mount deck hatch

Those hatches went out of production 30 years ago. Even so you can still buy new hinges and lenses. Do you need either of them ?

Re: Flush mount deck hatch

Yes I bought hinge kits - not inexpensive. They still need new lenses and the frames are both broken under a hinge. By the time I replace the parts and get the frame welded I'll have some pretty expensive hatches with ratty frames. That's assuming the welder does a really good job.

New hatches seem like a better way to go.
