Engine hatch hinge replacement?
 
I have a 1991 Cigarette Cafe Racer. I need new engine hatch hinges. Does anyone recognize these or know of a source where I could get new ones?

Any good chrome shop can strip those & replate them, and get them back to you in a weeks time. They are brass hinges. Been there.

One of them is slightly bent - so that doesn't solve the functional problem, only the cosmetic one... I might try to bend it back into being flat/true, but I don't have high hopes for that.

A buddy has same boat Ď91 cafe carbon fiber and replaced his hinges a couple weeks ago. His were Gem (Gemlux) brand. But his were the more traditional square style with 6 screw holes. Not sure why the same boat has different hinges. A quick search didnít yield any like yours on Gem site. Might shoot Gemlux a pic and see if they made those.
Southco also has a large selection of marine hinges. Might have one with same bolt pattern?

If yours are just bent on the flat area, a machine shop can flatten them out in a hyd press. Iíve also used our machine vices to flatten bent steel as the vice jaws are ground smooth and wonít mare the finish.

Interesting info.

Mine are just bent in the flat area - one side only - so maybe I will try the machine shop...

I found some Sea Dog hinges that look nice - but it would require mounting 2 per side vs one per side to deliver the same surface area of holding on the fiberglass.

Thanks!
