Replacing skylight acrylic

My parents have a skylight with a openable acrylic bubble, square in shape, and about 6-8 inches off the roof at it top. It is pretty old, probably 25-30 years, and was cracked in a storm last year causing it to leak.

Is there a site, or would a local store carry, replacement acrylic for this? I know it would be ideal to replace the entire thing, but it is in good shape, and they'd rather not spend the money if they don't have to.

Replacing skylight acrylic

Find the name on the sky light 'manufacturer' and than Google it, if they sale replacements you'll find them.
