Low profile hatches

Lewmar call these Hatches - low profile and what it does is it's low profile cuz it so the light issue because as you can see it's a little bit larger than this one there's no obstructions got a hundred percent UV. Here we've got a brand new gasket I and we address the cocking mechanism because we've got this nice adjustable mechanism that will allow them to open it and to any position.

Boat Hatches stress points

The Hinges - it's one of the bigger ones and stress points are usually where the hinges are - because that's where the most work is taking place.

These hinges act in such a way where the hatch can stay up on its own, without needing arm in arm to prop it up, the hinges of boat hatches can hold hatch and various oppositions, so the stress point usually winds up being raped on the hinge itself where the world was so the first thing we have to do is measure this and get it clamped so everything is in the right spot on.

Medium Profile Rectangular Hatches

For greater durability and strength the Medium Profile boat Hatches has designed with deeper frame sections and thicker acrylic. They featured unique sealing system by Lewmar. Comes equipped with Outside handles and Friction levers.

By sliding the two halves of the frame profile apart seal or acrylic can be replaced easy.

Ocean Hatches

No corrosion on at the aluminum anodized Ocean Hatch frame. What's new interesting is that this was installed fourteen years ago and it's still in perfect condition and it's really works as wells added the day was installed.

Lewmar ocean series boat hatches have one of them is that they've got a nice hinge mechanism where it's got a regular hinge on the back side and then a little counter spring on the inside that holds the hatchet any position.

Tension is adjustable are so that if you find your hatch overtime is starting to drip a little bit you can tighten it up easily.

If you've got a larger boat hatch, which is big enough for a person to climb and and you can also walk it in such a way that it's not entirely closed to give you ventilation. it also has inside and outside opening latches. These latches also allow you to lock the the rotation so that nobody can break in.

Perform the cut and replacing the glass

If you considered replacing that homemade looking original hatch.

I can use a jig saw but in the end end up using an orbital sander with 80 grit. I should have just used the sander. Lay down some tPe on the top and mark the outside of the hatch on it. Note that you don't want to remove material from the corner area as our current cutouts are square and the hatch is rounded. Then just sand to the lines. You also need to remove some material on the inside of the boat so you can through bolt the hinges.

Regarding replacing the glass Lewmar sold diy kits with new plexi/gaskets.
