    I want to replace the forward hatch on Unabated.
    It appears by my rough measurement that a lewmar ocean series size 40 would be a drop in.
    Anyone have any experience with that?

    Hey Alan,

    I just replaced all my hatch’s with Lewmar Ocean series. You need the 60 series for the v-berth and the one behind the mast and the 40 series for the one in the galley. I had to trim the fiberglass ever so slightly on the galley one but the other 2 were drop-in. I HIGHLY recommend using Bed-it butyl tape on the install. We’re slipped in Waterford Marina in Houston and didn’t have a single leak during hurricane Harvey.

    Thanks, I realized I needed the 60 after I got home and looked up the specs. Looks like a drop it. Flanged with no trim kit.
    Looking for a good price now.
    Survived the hurricane?

    Alan,
    I’ve got a line on four Ocean 60 flanged, brand new, $1200 plus shipping from SoCal. Interested in splitting the set with me if they’re still available?
