MOST! Hatch is broken on my 262

Recommended Posts


I have a 1999 Monterey 262

The plastic hinge the connects the hatch to the boat has disintegrated!


I asked my local dealer to order the hinge and they said it was not available.


Do you have any thoughts?


Thank you so much.





P.S. To other owners of similar boats, I highly recommend you keep the canvas cover over your forward hatch(s) to prolong this problem as long as possible.

Our boat had the cover on for 9 years. 1 year in the sun and now the hinge has failed.

Hello Beau,


That hatch is a NIBO N1139-10H-7W and is a 20" round. The distributor is Bomar Pompanette Inc. (603-826-5791) and their web address is www.pompanette.com. We do not have a separate number for the hinge only as we purchased them completely assembled in bulk.


Plexi, plastics and polymers have come a long way in 9 years as far as durability. You might want to think about replacing the whole hatch with a new improved one. They are expensive...however, as the old saying goes "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".
