GB Lazzarette Hatch hinges

I have a broken hinge on my 1982 GB Classic I'd like to replace. Anybody have some leads for a source of these castings? If not, I suppose I'd probably get 4 new deck hinges that would have a larger footprint so that they could be inlaid flush with the deck, right. Tim

Looks like it was made locally in overseas.

Perhaps you could cut down bronze hinge to fit , or trim the wood for a new hinge.

A "jewlers saw" is much easier to trim metal items.

Slow as the blades are very fine , but accurate.

GB Hinge

I actually got a reply from GB in Malaysia. They have what appears to be the identical hinge, but the finish is described as "Brass Satin Chrome". I wonder how it holds up in weather? Picture hopefully attached.

Good chrome will last many years especially when put on good brass. Many of the new boats have gone to all SS hardware. So part of the boat will be up to date looking.

Even if the chrome doesn't really last the underlying brass likely is the same as what you have now so should give good service for many years.

Get a few extras just in case and keep the old, still good one.

Better than butchering the hatch even if you are good with tools.

send me your address.
I'll mail you one tomorrow - I have to go to the post office anyways.
I had them on my steps up to the aft deck but had to replace most of them.
Have one right here.

I'm still having a bit of a hard time navigating this website. To the responder who asked for my address, please reach me at timothyvail@aol.com. Do you think these are really brass, or do you think these are probably the same bronze castings that have been "satin chromed". I'd love to get some replacements for the originals. Thanks for the help.

Tim

Hinges

Thanks to you I recently purchased two sets of hinges from Grand Banks. Iíve taken delivery of them and I must admit that they are substantial in construction and will be a good replacement for my old broken ones. Grand Banks made the purchase and shipping very easy. When I install my new ones Iíll have three hinges for sale.
