We replaced the lexan on*2 hatches on our last boat.* We removed the*old lexan took it to a shop and they cut and beveled the*new pieces.* They helped us with the correct caulkings and it looked brand new.
As far as the condensation goes, try cracking the hatch 1/4" or so when the kids are sleeping.* You have warm moisture ladened air*and the*aluminum frame is a great thermal conductor so it sweats.* Or*add a thermal break like Mike suggested.* Replacing the aluminum hatch with an another aluminum hatch won't stop the condensation.
