Re: SM Goiot Hatch Models & Lense Colors
Hi Gary,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I can confirm the Tradition and Cristal hatch models. I replaced the lens over the forward head with clear plexiglass, cut locally to match the old lens. I scuffed it up with a random orbital sander and 320 grit paper.
Sorry, o can’t help you with color of lenses.

First post on the new site. Really great search engine here, but wasn't able to find this info. Doing the research to replace a couple of lenses on my Goiot hatches as they are starting to have crazing (the little speckles that appear in the lense with UV/aging. I believe the hatches on the deck of the my Amel SM 2000 #335 are Goiot Traditional model hatches and the hatch on the aft face of the aft cabin is a Goiot Cristal Range model. Can anyone confirm these model designations for me.
Lenses for the foredeck are "blue" , I believe, and it must be that Amel somehow made the forward cabin and forward head lenses seimi-opaque as I don't see that Goiot offers that option. Any thoughts on that process?
Goiot offers both blue and gray lenses. I am virtually certain that the saloon hatch lenses is blue, but am uncertain about the color of the aft cabin hatch lenses color. Any thoughts and information would be appreciated.
