Groit (sp) hatches - replacements- French boat

I am probably spelling this wrong since nothing comes up on Google but this weekend, we broke another handle on our Groit hatches. The hatches are great but I suspect that after 27 years, the UV has taken it's toll. I am a bit nervous as there are 14 handles total on the boat. Can someone point me in the correct direction for replacements?

Thanks Pitchondesign - I was sure I had the spelling correct.

Those were well made hatches, solid cast compared to today's extruded types.

Re: Groit (sp) hatches - replacements- French boat

I bought a used Goiot hatch for my refit and it came without the inside handles. I called Goiot in France for some replacements and they quoted me $1,000 EACH!!
I got on the web and found an industrial supply(now forgotten-sorry) and bought two nice chromeplated bronze handles that I drilled out with a metric bit to fit the actuating rods and got it all done for about $40.
I have had Goiot hatches quoted to me wholesale at about $5000 each. Either their pricing is ridiculous (probably) or their sales department has confused the Euro/dollar conversion ( unlikely).
Better make your own.

Re: Groit (sp) hatches - replacements- French boat

Uncivilized - yes, once I had the spelling correct, I searched all these sites and found pricing extremely high and quite variable.

Budget Marine had the best cost by far (reasonable) but their PN was different. I have sent them an email asking to confirm and any issues to ship to the US.
If this does not work out, i am seriously considering to build a mold in China and mold 100 of each. I am pretty sure I could make them stronger and maybe less than $40 each with the mold amortized. Anybody need a few?

It is indeed 'GOIOT'

and depending on which hatch, I might be interested in handles, although mine are hanging in there

pic, perhaps?
thx

Re: Groit (sp) hatches - replacements- French boat

Hi,
I have purchased GOIOT hatch locking handles from Select Plastics in Norwalk, CT, USA. Make sure you specify RH or LH. In 2014 the cost was around $60.00USD each, great service.
You can find them at selectplastics.com
Saludos,
Allan

Budget Marine - Yes, great pricing. Sent them an email and no reply.
I took off a good handle and designing in 3D CAD now and will get a price to have a mold made in China and evaluate to mold my own.
