FYI for anyone with a Lexan or Plexiglass hatch that is cracked or broken you can repair the material with IPS Weld On number 40 a commercial grade epoxy. We repaired a load bearing 3/4 inch piece of Lexan with this successfully cost about $40 compared to having a hatch fabricated for $300
Note weld on 3 or 16 will not work for a major repair only 40 and that is commercial not retail so searching was required

Re: Need New Hatch Door

On an old boat you need to "do-it-yourself" which means disassembling the broken hatch to remove the plastic and then Goggling "plastics acrylics" and getting a replacement piece of plexiglass. Then put the hatch back together.
- - It would greatly help if you posted photos of the "broken hatch" so folks could offer suggestions on how to repair it.

The hatch is curved so one would have to be fabricated I looked for three weeks to find epoxy to try to repair it and it worked and is strong and secure . I will post pics
