    What is this hatch trim material called / sourced?

    Hi all,

    In my hopes for an "easy one", I'd like to replace this shrunken / cracked fake wood trim material in the hatches. Anyone know what it's called / where I can find simple replacement?

    It's called plastic T-molding, widely available. For example, https://www.amazon.com/Johnsonite-T-.../dp/B01N5FETYW

    Instead of "teak", I chose white. It matches the gelcoat, not the trim, and to my eye looks less artificial.

    I forget the measurements, but compare what you have to the several sizes available.

    It's called 'T molding' or 'Tee moulding' by Outwater Plastics where I bought it years ago. I believe what I bought was 3/4" teak wood grain: https://www.outwater.com/products/zz-105-679/

    I either bought 25 feet or I bought more and sold the rest on this site. I can't remember. The web site says it is only available in 250 ft coils. I would talk to them to see what kind of deal you can make with them. Other people on the list have gotten non-standard orders on extrusions from them.

    The other useful product they have is sliding cabinet door track.

    RV repair places sometimes carry it.
