Hatch Pulls wanted

I'm searching for a couple of matching hatch pulls for my Krogen Manatee. I've tried the usual makers but to no avail. Still searching marine used parts outfits. Size approx 3 3/4" X 2 3/4". Thanks in advance for any help.

Did you check here?

Second Wave-Marine Consignment Stores

Here's another one near me that just might have them. If they have them in stock, let me know. I'll go check them out, get them and mail them to you.

Thanks Al. I checked the Second Wave Marine link and sent shipwreck an e-mail with the description. Who knows, maybe.

PERKO Inc. - Cabinet Hardware - Flush Lifting Handle (Marinium)

Maybe not suitable but maybe so. There are two sizes and the larger has the screws in the corner apparently.

C letric: I really like the looks of those pulls, but they are chrome plated. They've got some other brass units too, but they tend to rattle when mounted over top an idling diesel. Thanks.

Man, what a catalog. No luck on the stock of flush handles they have though.

Did you try Lee Valley? If not it's a good place to kill some time and spend some money...

Wow...great feedback. Mike Barge, you nailed it. True, they are brass, but I can switch out the other set on the other veranda hatch so everything matches....maybe even brush the brass so it weathers a bit. Unfortunately, the page reads "out of stock". Well, at least they have a source.

Northern Spy (another Mike). I must have been on that site for over an hour and bought two other items.

Psn: That second one with the hatch lock is really worth thinking about. These days, Krogen is putting locks on the hatches. This is a new hatch that would be big enough for someone to crawl into, perhaps past the genset and main engine and get into the cabin. Hadn't thought about it, but maybe I should go with that design instead.

Great feedback. Thanks everyone.

You might try Perko to see if you can get unplated or unchromed. At some point in the mfgr, they are just raw brz.

Unless of course the others are deemed more suitable.

Larry, if that one I got you from Phoenix Lock won't work, you can return it.

C lectric is right about the Perko ones. At some point they are not plated and they are the right size. The problem is they make them in batches and it can be some time between runs.

If they would work, you could buy the chrome plated ones and have them unplated. I understand any plating shop can do that.

The Phoenix units were just too deep to mount them flush. They were through the teak and almost through the top glass layer. Before I made the commitment to mount them, I set them on the hatch and started the engine, let it idle. They rattle pretty badly. I need to find the tight handles like the original units. Sometimes they are too tight, but no rattles anywhere.

I figured I had them too long to return them to Phoenix. I may be able to use them for something else as well. I like to keep hardware on hand.

Since there is only one other hatch in the veranda, I might consider replacing them all with brass. I've also refinished the teak deck and trim, so it might look pretty good. Additionally, the idea of using a locking hatch pull may be the perfect excuse for doing the same to both hatches. The new hatch looks so original that I thought it would deserved the original style pulls.

I picked up a stainless shell latch that looks like what you have. It won't rattle as the handle is spring loaded to keep it down.
It will be a few days before I am home to check you the manufacturer is.

"I figured I had them too long to return them to Phoenix"
That's why you bought them from your friendly neighborhood marine store.
If you can't use them, return them. I'll take care of it.
You can buy me lunch as a thank you for such good service!

I'm not sure that would be a good deal or not. I've already seen how much you can eat!

Healhustler,

Looking over some of your posts today to see what other Manatee projects you've documented I saw this image. Is this a photoshoped photo or did you add the 2nd hatch compartment? Was it a DIY job? It looks nice but I also thought about a way to lock it, I actually had a skinny friend who could gain access to my boat from the companionway hatches into the galley. Used to show up early for happy hour without me! I am curious about the thickness of the sole - both the plank and structure. Mine is varnished but I'm wondering about stripping it off and leaving it natural. The 2nd hatch sure would make access easier.

I've always been a little concerned about a non-locking cockpit hatch. If the boat gets pooped, you'd lose the hatch (and then your engine).

So make sure there is a catch on your hatch latch!
