1941 16' deluxe hatch support

Post by Patrick41 » Sun Sep 13, 2020 10:30 am

A few years ago (10) I damaged my hatch and gave it to a friend that was a good craftsman to repair / rebuild hatch. it was gone maybe 3 months during which time, upon it's return, I repainted and varnished hatch and following spring I realized the hatch support and it's scews are missing. I figured they would show up eventually, here it is 10 years on, I have searched, cleaned garage, poured through every box, drawer, shelf, and this pesky little item is needed, i've used a stick and other temporary means, does anyone know where I might find the correct item ? California boats has two, the small one is too big. any help would be much appreciated :D

Thanks Matt, I already tried Jim, he said no good on that, it's a hard item to fake or reproduce

OH GOD! That is a sign of the apocalypse. 2020 is such a strange year.
Here is a list of places I look. Some very obvious, some not.
1. Classic Boat Connection
2. Ebay
3. Here on Boat Buzz.
4. And if you send me photos of the part. [email protected] And your boat, I will do a story to reach out to the citizens of Woodyboaterville and they always provide. Someone somewhere has one but dont know what it looks like. I am sure its used on other boats.

Did your hinge look like this ?

I don't have an extra but the casting number on mine for my single hatch is 2163.
