Nasty weather really damaged it, front folded back, sides folded in.

Would appreciate any sources for a replacement.

Thank you.

If it's flat I bet you can have it made at a good glass shop. Don't try to take one of those out of its mounts without another set of hands nearby to assist. They are just heavy and wonkey enough to get out of control on you if a gust of wind blows ect......

Still tons of snow on the ground, but doing net searches on replacement windows, noted that it seems just the 1950 bowrider is using tempered glass. Anything I could fine smaller or lager under Bayliner is using acrylic or Plexiglas if you may.

Further confusion resulted in that several listed marine grade acrylic, haven't found if this is a special kind of acrylic as opposed to home grade acrylics. At my airport, just about any plane uses acrylics, even the WW II B-17 used Plexiglass for the bomb bay front window.

I will have my garage to work in, didn't get a chance to study these tempered glass windows carefully, but did appear they have holes drilled in the glass for the rivets. Did check at a couple of local glass places, they don't drill holes in tempered glass. But closer study will reveal this. Windows are flat, have to be sent out to be cut for the side curved top windows, was just told, $$$$$.

Have worked with Plexiglass many times before and have all the tools to work with it, has UV protection and claims to be many times stronger than glass. Right now, in the stage of kicking this around.

I can't say my experience with tempered glass has been the greatest. A year ago an oncoming semi kicked a stone to one my side side windows that scattered it into a thousand pieces. And this stuff does cut skin.

Finally got around to it, lots of spring rains. Was simple to remove each section, six sections held together by a corrugated strip that could be pulled out. Then maybe a screw or two to remove where the section could be removed by pulling it out from the hull attached molding.

Frames are all in good shape, but wondering why they used tempered glass in this 1950, as any other boat smaller or larger than this 1950 is using plexiglass, as does the military for exactly the same reason.

But still hoping to hear from Chief Allen, been a tough winter and spring so far, four feet of snow and now, constant rains. And way too cold to even think about going to the beach.
