Deck Hatch Hinges

Trying to find replacement hinges for the deck hatch on our rib.

It's a Foresti & Suardi hatch, and I've emailed them only to be referred onto a UK distributor whom I haven't been able to get in touch with.

Here's a few pictures of the hinges, anyone know where I could get a couple?

Ah! Never mind, just got through to the distributor and he can get me hinges although at 11.40 + VAT each...

wouldn't it be easier to source a new hatch that has good spares availability?

It may be except that these type of hatches tend to be around the 500 quid mark

And the hatch would have to be exactly the same dimensions otherwise modifications into fairly thick GRP would have to be made and I'm not too keen on that either.

at 500 for the hatch, 11 for the hinge seems quite reasonable
