Default Donzi hatch hinge

I'm trying to find the manfacture of the Donzi engine hatch hinges for the 99 26ZX. I've misplaced one half, & now I really need one. I've contacted Donzi, but have not gotten a return call from them. I've checked at West Marine, & Boaters World, but nothing matches. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Post a picture, there are tons of types of hinges. I'm sure Donzi didn't make the hinge so someone is bound to have seen it somewhere else.

Thanks, I've done that, but nothing yet. I'll post a pic & measurements later today. I've found Perko has the same design, but measurements are wrong, they call it a "pull-out", or a "take-apart" hinge.

I saw your post on the Donzi site after I posted that. They don't get nearly the traffic as Oso. If nobody answers today, send a pm to "Mr X" on that site.

Any Donzi dealer should be able to order the hinges. Donzi probably won't sell direct to the customer so you must go through a dealer.

some of the hinges used by Donzi were not of the shelf products. if its anything like the ones used on the larger boats it may have to be a custom fabbed piece. a friend of mine has a 33 zx and had to have one made.
