hatch screens

Postby bg5w » Wed Sep 07, 2016 1:04 pm

Anybody know the make and/or model number for the 3 vertical hatches that open into the cockpit? These are the big 11x17 hatches.

I need to order a new screen. Thanks

Hey Bob, if memory serves we used Beckson hatches in the 32 cockpit. James

Thanks James

looked o Beckson and Bomar sites - couldn't find them.

Maybe they discontinued replacement screens for this size porthole?

Still no source? I have one that is cracked but still functional. I guess We'll need to figure out how to fabricate them. I bet I could pop one out from fiberglass shower surround materials and window screen in about 20 minutes. But it will need to be more broken before I try!

Maybe I'll bring one home and try. They are out for the winter anyway--I swap them for 1/8" Lexan for the winter. I'm going sailing for a few days tow marrow, but I'll be running the heat for sure.
