Re: Lewmar acrylic lens replacement on Amel 54

Barry Connor

Hi Paul,
 No, not UV damage. The boat yard workers in Monastir, Tunisia sprayed/spilt a liquid all over my topside. The deck polished out OK but all the acrylic hatches, port lights and widescreens need replacement. When we bought in 2015 all windows were perfect no signs of any marks or UV affects, now we have streaks and blotches everywhere.
I don’t know if any Amel 54 owners have had to replace the acrylics before. If anyone has any experience with replacement of the acrylics I would really appreciate any advise. This is becoming a challenge. A have had some traders wanting to cut out and replace, don’t know what quality acrylic I might get. I only want the genuine supply from manufacturers.
Would appreciate any advise that anyone has.

I’m curious as to why they need replacing – UV damage? Should I be concerned about mine?

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Lewmar acrylic lens replacement on Amel 54


I need to replace all my Lewmar arcylic lens on the 7 Lewmar hatches. I have measured the outside and they tally with Lewmar specs for the size 50,54,60,and 70.
I measure the actual lens size and the size does not match the Lewmar specification for the actual lens.
Lewmar size 50: My overall outer measurements, 448x578mm. Same as Lewmar spec. 
Lewmar size 50 lens: Lewmar specification measurement for lens is 377x507mm. My measurement of Lens inside the seal 387x517.

Can anyone put me straight on this?
These acrylic lenses do not seem difficult to install after looking at the Lewmar video, don't want to order the wrong size.
