Default Hatch/plexiglass replacement for 1995 3200 scr

Hi folks, new here, just picked up a 95 3200 scr. One of the items I need to repair is the front square hatch.
The hatch itself is fine, but the white plexiglass is cracked.
Anyone know where to get replacement part for it? I'm on the east coast, NY.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

I have replaced mine twice. Measure the hatch glass. Parts book says it should be 20.25" x 20.25" Bomar. Then call:

Bomar Customer Service Location
PO Box 1200
South West Street
Charlestown, NH 03603
tel: (603) 826 5791
fax: (603) 826-4125

You have your choice of the white or tinted. Comes with new latches utrasonically welded in the plexiglass. You must also replace the rubber gasket. They will tell you the correct adhesive to use. Cost is about $150 or so which beats 5 to 6 hundred for a new hatch if you can find one that size. You need to disect the old one with a sharp razor knife by going all around the outside top edge to break the seal of the old adhesive. It should push out relatively easily but if it breaks don't worry as you are replacing everything anyway. Just be careful as you can still cut yourself on the plexiglass. Clean the crap out of the frame. Acetone works well with a scotchbrite. Cut the new gasket material to fit tight and use a dap of super glue on the cut ends of the gasket and bond them together for a continuous seal. Leave the protective coating on the top side of new lense until you are completly done and the adhesive has fully cured. Take painters tape and cover the top edge of the frame. You will need to put a good bead of adhesive all along the rubber gasket, insert the new lense and you should have about a 1/4" gap all the way around that you will need to fill in with adhesive. By leaving the protective coating on the lense and useing the painters tape around the edge of the frame you will keep the adhesive off of the exposed portion of the lense and frame. Here is the link to the Maximum parts book for your boat if you don't already have it. http://www.maxumcustomercare.com/catalogs_index.html

Would you have any info on where to get the rubber gasket you mention to replace as well? Would that be Bomar as well?

Yes, the sell it along with the plexiglass. Sells by the foot and they know how much you need. As I recall they also sell the adhesive but at a pretty steep mark-up. Just get the specific brand and type (I think it is a Dow Chemical product) and price it out online.
