suggest to forget about recalls, etc and move on with your life else you will waste nice part of your sailing life and nerves on this.

i installed brackets - ensure they swim in sikaflex - and will at next haulout circle whole window with black sikaflex so it covers join acryclic window - aluminium. that should stop any water jets to compromise seal and add tons of support. Will inspect yearly.

Along this line of thinking.....if it’s egress you’re worried about, glass in the hole and hang a hand drill and a pruning saw next to it. I can promise a quick exit if you need it.

Yep, bound to be a better solution than just a recreation deck hatch...like a proper metal hatch that can be dogged down.

Personally, there are so many ways in/out of most cats it doesnt worry me (my boat fortunately does not have these damn things).

Its mostly a French thing.

Re: Lagoon Escape Hatches Falling Out

I had a very good response from Outremer when I contacted them via email to ask if our escape hatches were part of the recall. Grand Large Services were very quick to get back to me to explain that the hatches in our boat prior to the problem time and not affected by the recall.

They did offer a replacement set of lenses (the glass and frame that it sits in) with a new design that provides mechanical support to the lenses and not just sealant.

Copied below is the reply I got back from Outremer:

“Thanks for your message and sorry for this late answer.
We have lot of demands on this topic and I understand your concerns.
Actually, you are not affected by the recall campaign, the ones involved are those made between 2014 & 2018.
No Outremer boat is concerned as during this period, we have installed
only 44C Goïot escape hatch (round model)

In your case, Goïot propose a special price if you want upgrade the hatches for the new model of 49.42 square escape hatch but no warranty.
The price is 270.00€ for the lid only as the fixed base part is the same (shipping cost excluded), you have then to remove your handles and reinstall back on the new lid.
The new lid is equipped with a screw on the top between the frame and the glass (see picture) That means if the silicone degrades, the glass won't falls.”

Weird that Lagoon are not being helpful. Try Goiot directly?

That is a much better grade of hatch than what I have seen in Lagoons. Would be even better if that fragile bit of glass were replaced w aluminum plate.

This is my thinking as well, but not planning to use the brackets from Giot. Plan to get fabricated longer and wider brackets.
