Re: GOIOT Hatches - Repairing, Parts & Re-Lens



It's possible to replace just the lens. The previous owner of our boat went that route. I have some pretty extensive notes and files on Goiot hatches I can send. There's a surprising amount of spares still available.

Our boat is a 82' Maramu, the hatches are almost impossible to see through (light yes, clear anything no).

Ordered new handles and some new rod stops from - looks like they also carry new 'replacement' versions but BOY they aren't cheap.

Wasn't sure if the consensus was to replace the entire hatch with a new one, or if people can simply replace the lenses with fairly little fuss.

Looking for any advice or insight into the costs, time, frustration (if any) and viability of both options.

My wife and I are trying to spend as LITTLE as possible and do most of the work ourselves, so any advice is greatly appreciated.
