forward deck hatch/vent

Glenn Thomson
Does anyone know the brand name of the hatch/vent on 7.6 Kelt?
And has anyone found a parts kit for the vent and seal?

On my boat, it's the Beckson Vent-O-Mate (C-6SS). There's a picture on the company website:
https://beckson.com/vent.html. You could contact them about parts.

I replaced mine in 2018. I got it from www.marineoutfitters.ca. It doesn't look like they sell parts kits though.

Thanks again, yes that C-6SS vent cover is what I have too.  The plastic bits that make up the vent are nearly turned to powder.

Looks like the cover and plastic parts all come as one,  I'll contact to see if vent comes without top steel cover.

Contacted Beckson.com, they are manufacturers of the vent.
They have a part kit C-6D that replaces the original plastic parts.
Waiting to here where I can order from, not listed on Amazon or at West Marine.

$40 US + shipping from Beckson for the vent plastic parts.  They advised try Fisheries Supplies in Seattle.
There you go.  I just bought a new in box complete Beckson vent from Craig's for $12 CDN

Just replaced foreward hatch vent.  Nice that the same vents are still made.  Pretty easy job however, the new screws are a different length then what was there previously and some of the plexiglass has chipped away.  The newer Vent-O-Mate has very minor improvements over the old one.  The old plastic pieces pretty much turned to sand when I touched them.
