These hatches are only available as complete units ie frame and hatch, Aqua Marine do not list or supply them in component form - so unless you can find a builder who has "scrapped" a frame on fitting who may then sell you the spare insert I think it unlikely that you will get hold of just that part.

Hatches on my Redbay

For anyone with an older Redbay,
I have discovered that the forward hatches were made by Osculati. These were reinforced I assume by Redbay as the treadmaster is over the scews with a wooden bracer across the middle. Replacement latches are availble from IMS 01427 617845, I've just had to order some more after the handles had broken off making access to the anchor etc rather difficult!!
I belive the current Redbay hatches are a different manufaturer but still available from IMS.
Now just got to measure them up for new seals as I'm getting bored of biling those lockers out!!

I think there must be several manufactures of this type of hatch because of the mixed opinion on them. In my experience they are not as strong as I was lead to believe and far from water proof, but this might be because I had a weaker version. The hatch I had was CE marked, well it had a CE sticker, which is something or nothing.

Osculati are wholesalers so I would be surprised if they make these hatches.

It always interests me how a product is marked if a manufacture is proud of his product he puts the name where you can see it, I canít find any names on these hatches.
