Replacing Hatch lenses and gaskets

All of the hatches on our boat have crazing in the lenses.

We decide to replace the lenses and gaskets. After a little searching on the inter web for replacement lenses I discovered a few options.

  1. That there are companies that you can send the hatch to for refurbishing. ($180 to $400 per hatch)
  2. You can buy OEM replacement lenses and do it yourself. ($150 to$300 per hatch)
  3. Buy the acrylic and cut and replace lenses ourselves. ($10 to $36 per hatch)

Well you can probably guess we went with option 3.  Considering we could buy all the acrylic we needed for the price of one of our large lens.
