As Catalina introduces new models, it is likely there will be other boats that use this same hatch. It is also possible that not every boat described above used this hatch. Please use the dimensions above and the photos below to verify which hatch is actually installed on your boat.

1) Lewmar reports that, in order to rate as an "Ocean" hatch, the lens is bonded into the frame under climate controlled conditions. This allows the lens itself to contribute to the structural integrity of the entire hatch assembly. Retrofitting a lens without a similar controlled environment will not produce as strong a bond and will reduce the overall strength of the hatch assembly. For a hatch that maintains the strength of the original hatch, we recommend "Forward Hatch Replacement Lid w/Frame Lewmar Trapezoid" part #Z3006 pictured below under "May we also suggest".
2) When used on the Catalina 42, this hatch is typically used only on boats with a centerline double berth forward. If the boat has the pullman berth forward, a different hatch was used. This custom hatch had a water blasted lens for privacy in the forward head. Unfortunately, with the advent of advanced hatch shade/screen options for new boats, there is no longer a demand for the water blasted lens, so Lewmar has discontinued it.
3) We have reports that the friction lever locations have varied over the years, so the slots for the levers will need to be added to match your lever locations on your existing hatch.
