Where to find hinges

I've got a couple of broken cockpit locker hinges that I'd like to replace with identical or similar, but can't find them. Can't figure out how to rotate the photo but you get the idea. The 4 3/8" length seems to be an odd one.

Anybody have good sources? Prefer Canada but can deal with US. Further than that gets complicated.

Home Hardware has a good assortment. Doesn't need to be "marine", just good quality. Good luck.

Stu, thanks for pointing out what should have been obvious. I sometimes miss that.

West Marine carries that style of hinge.

Re: Where to find hinges

Perhaps this is the same bolt dim. It appears to have less material past the outer holes than yours, but the holes may be at same location.

Re: Where to find hinges

Iíll keep looking, but what Iím seeing from everyoneís ideas is that four inch is the standard now. (A local chandlery told me thatís what the factory in China produces and thatís what everyone sells.)

My 4 3/8Ē may have been standard 30 years ago when the boat was built, but isnít easy to find now. I may have to bite the bullet, fill the existing holes, and install something else.

Thanks all for the suggestions.

Something like this maybe?

You'd be hard pressed to find anything with matching holes. I see whipping up some epoxy in your future.
