Viking hatches

I am after 2 Viking hatches to replace some on my boat.

Does anyone have any ? Or know anywhere that might ?

I know that Viking have ceased trading.

A belated welcome to the forum. Nine years between joining and posting may be a record.

There are a few on Ebay at the moment.

Just bought far superior hatches Rabud from a company called specialist small craft in Amesbury wiltshire ..........Florida made ,expensive though !
with my limited learnings it would appear the ones with hinges to the edges are all a little inferior imo

Ocean Chandlery (Emsworth) may well be able to help they stock a wide range of hatches and post worldwide.

Even the really expensive plastic ones often have a "Not for mounting in cockpit floor" or similar warning on them.

I have a little round 8" Bomar hatch that seems to cope with occasionally being trodden on but it is right up in the bow and I'm still wary of its existence.

I ended up fitting a Lewmar Size 30 hatch which obviously isn't flush but has no issues with being walked on even with my ample frame.

The Rabud one mentioned by Orwell Boy might be worth a try. The 8" deck plate looks similar (it's round and a similar size) to the Bomar one although with a fair bit less structure on the underside of the hatch. It's a third of the price though.

You can get aluminium ones - Ceredi, Freeman or Hercules for example but they are eye wateringly expensive.

Having written all that crap, the direct answer to your question is I'm afraid I don't.

If it is the frame rather than the lid you broke, it is possibly because the deck flexed too much for the frame. In this cased you could epoxy / sika down a ring around the opening and then attach the frame to that. That might stiifen up the area enough to prevent the frame cracking.
