Going to be difficult to buy a new one. I'd look at having one made.... How bad is the crack? They sell gelcoat repair kits. If you are going to replace you may want to give it a shot on your own.

My transom door cracked down the edge.it was where the door was bonded together .I removed the door pried the crack open a little bit filled it with West Epoxy clamped it. After it cured I ground it out a little with a Dremel tool then filled it with matching gel coat wet sand &buff .lt has never cracked again. Itís been more than 6 years.Less than $50.00.
