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

Dave,

I've had the perspex replaced - easy and a big cosmetic improvement. Assuming you have the same hatches...The plastic hinges are a good design in that they knock out sideways. The stainless bolt on the stays may be siezed but if your black handled locking knobs work it is still possible to slide the whole stay off and then take the hatch to a perspex/boat windows place. Leave it there and collect later with beautiful new perspex. Cost was very reasonable.

Hello,

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 https://www.hatchmasters.com - 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.
