Anyone know what brand deck hatch (or also known as inspection cover) MC uses in our boats? Specifically the ones with a flip up "T" handle covering my front bilge pump. I'm looking for a complete 8" assembly in black.

The white one in our boat just is not acceptable as you can see in the first photo. :(

Apparently MC now installs black deck hatches in black top deck boats like this X23.

I think this is it.

Close, however they are not screw in caps but rather have a cam lever action where you twist the flip up "T" handle to remove or lock into position. The "T" handle lever then folds flat into the hatch cover. I can find the screw cap style from many sources but have not seen a match to the MC ones yet.

Yes, you are getting warmer! LOL The "T" handle on the MC ones is flat across the top and tapers inward on the outside edges where the one posted above has a domed mushroom shape to the "T" handle. You wouldn't think there would be so many differences! :)

Here is the best photo I could find of ours....

That looks to be the exact one I'm wanting to replace my white one with. Thanks for your help! :D

Yep, I found that yesterday with the help from gweaver and a part number search on Google. Same place but you can buy one vs a case of 12.

Thanks for your help guys! :)
