Yes-these 2 hatches.

Both with the same logo.


Ballistic in SA can supply them, but the shipping is crippling (nearly 100) and they won't tell me who makes them...

Take them out and replace the hatch and deck ring with ones of similar diameter that you can source in the UK?

That's the issue-the hole in the deck is cut for the hatch that's in there and is fitted at the factory in SA. The screw holes in the current hatch are about 1/2" further apart than any generic similar size ones available in the UK so there's nothing under the screw holes to fix the screws into.


I did consider taking it out to an 8" hole, but the generic 8" hatches aren't anywhere near as beefy as this one.

Bump-just got the quote to get some over from South Africa and it's going to be 183 for 2x3" hatches and 2x6" hatches so if ANYONE recognises it?

Sorry, can't help with id-ing yours, but if you want a bullet proof hatch, try Bailey Marine I've got one in my deck for access to the sounder transducer & you could literally drive a bus over it. Not cheap, but might compare with buying yours from SA

Is it the 4" hatch you've got there? If it is, can you measure the distance between 2 opposite screw hole centres for me please?

Cut them out and replace them with something you can get your hands on.

Most of the plastic hatches are supplied by C-Quip btw.

Anyway try some of these, bit more upmarket than the Henderson hatches.

Force 4 10" Round Inspection Hatch- Dia: 334mm- Cutout:265mm- Opening:240mm - Only 24.95 - Force 4 Chandlery
