Re: Lewmar acrylic lens replacement on Amel 54
When I took AMELIT over in NOUMEA NEW CALEDONIA I had massive leaks in several of the LEWMAR hatches; clearly the seals had a problem and I needed to replace all the seals which were NOT in stock in NEW CAL.
I was referred to a local (French) hatch specialist (Anthony) and he cut out all the existing LEWMAR seal from the top of the hatch (without removing the frame etc.) with a pen knife; then he resealed with an UV resistant sealant (I don’t have the name here in USA but I have it on the boat) and I never had another leak since. It took him only 2 hours to do all the hatches and it looks & functions perfectly.

We replaced all overhead hatch seals at the Manoel yard in Malta. Takes about one hour each.
