Re: RE: Forward Hatch




Mike,

I am travelling right now but upon my return home next weekend, will email you the contact particulars for a company in Florida which provided a replacement hatch.  It is 1/2 inch dark smoked glass (see the tech tip).  Much, much stronger although you will have to shim the hinges up a little to get the correct compression on the seal.  I will replace my seal (Gene provided mine) and provide the height specification for the shims in the spring when this winter makes its exit.

Regards,

Doug Murray
