Hi folks, Anyone know how much UV will penetrate the grey acrylic? on a Lewmar Ocean hatch and reach the inside of the boat? Her indoors is concerned about UV damage to light-blue coloured upholstery... thanks.

My boat has the darker shade (smoky blue) of acrylic on all the Lewmar hatches, most of which allow light to shine on berths / saloon. They hatches and upholstery are quite old so have had plenty of UV. There is no evidence of any shading on the cushions except a general lightening of colour over all, which I put down to age.

Ask Lewmar if they have UV filtering in the hatch.
