    Walk thru windshield brace on 2855-gctid398514

    My windshield was open during some high winds and got slammed shut. Thankfully the glass did not break, but the windshield brace foot did.

    I have been trying to find some direct replacement lengths in an aftermarket part, but have been unsuccessful. I have found the replacement part that I need http://http://www.sea-dog.com/groups...eld-brace-foot, but it is for an 1/2 inch diameter support tube. It appears that the OEM diameter on my 2000 2855 is either 3/4 inch.

    Does anyone have a source for the brackets that fit a 3/4 inch tube?

    There are several types out there. Taylor and Attwood make them. Usually, the brace is of a smaller diameter. http://www.wholesalemarine.com/p/NAT...pport+Bar.html

    When you see the larger diameter, you're usually talking about Bimini top tube and hardware. This would probably work out for you.

        Thanks for the advice. Bayliner appears to love their 7 inch windshield brace at $47/piece. Subsequently, i think I will go with a cut to fit kit at $8.34/piece.

        Hard to believe that bayliner does not sell just the bracket mount. Plastic piece that is exposed to UV rays for 12 years is bound to get a little brittle and need replacing!
