    Does anyone know a good source for deck hatches? I am trying to replace one that is 21 3/4 x 21 3/4 (the deck cutout size) and cannot seem to find any in this size. Any leads as to where to search (retail, wholesale, websites... anything) would be greatly appreciated. I am in St. Pete Florida, USA.

    thanks,

    Sounds like a bowmar hatch to me..... They are part of pompanette... I would look pompanette up then find the bomar section It is complete with instructions as to deterimine which hatch you may have...... If it is just the glass you can have theat made locally at a glass shop (did mine out of lexan) then install them yourself!!!

    thanks for the replies. It was a SMB hatch which I am guessing from my searches is no longer in business. I tried google, but it is a uncommon size so the google and froogle searches were not too helpful (but I did find lots of othe rsize hatches :) )

    I tried bomar (pompanette, LLC), and theirs was the closest. I spoke with them on the phone and they were very helpful.

    Thanks again for the suggestions, I really appreciate it.

    Why not call Hatteras in New Bern?
