I have two hatches on my 1999 C36 that are both severely crazed and both leak. I have read some good reviews on this forum about Select Plastics/Hatch Masters in CT, so I decided to call for a quote. After sending pictures and speaking with Tony, I was quoted $439 per hatch. Just to be clear, this is a REBUILD of my existing hatch.
My hatches are Lewmar Coastline, size 44. Defender has Lewmar Low Profile hatches in that same size for $363. Can anyone tell me why I should go with a rebuilt hatch vs. brand new? The only logical reason to go with rebuilding my old hatches for more $ would be the guarentee that they fit? Thanks again!
