    3888 Window Trough Tracking-gctid394838

    ok, we are going to bite the bullet and replace ALL the U-Tracking in the windows on our 3888. We need to know if anyone has done this, and approx how much trough tracking did you have to purchase, and where did you get it for the best price???

      Beth, This topic has been discussed many times. A quick search should give you all the info you need----perhaps more.

          I like JC Whitney better.. they deliver here to Alaska without asking for your first born and a left leg for mailing it here

              Try this:

              JC Whitney

              Horizontal = #14-3542

              Vertical = #18-4873

              Here's a link to the #14-3542

              http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/I...D:100000166886

              There are 2 types of sliding window - you don't say which you're having trouble with but I'll guess both.

              The quick (temporary) fix is generous silicone spray in the tracks, and work them back and forth.

              The large saloon windows need to have their track flocking changed. You can buy it in a number of places.

              JC Whitney is a cheap option:

              Horizontal = #14-3542; Vertical = #18-4873; http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/I...D:100000166886

              or Restoration Specialties & Supply, Inc (814) 467-9842 . www.restorationspecialties.com/

              The part numbers from StanPro are AS1466 for Horizontal pieces and AS1369 for the sides. StanPro seems to be best fit and quality.

              The mid-cabin stateroom/galley windows are harder to deal with. Some folks just go ahead and replace them. Order from Buccaneer Mfg. co. - http://www.buccaneermfg.com/. in Florence, OR. 541-997-3573 . They are Hehr windows. The part numbers for an '89 are 01-1961-104-620-3535-2551 and 01-1962-104-620-3535-2551. Call them with cut-out dimensions before ordering.

              The install is easy. Getting the old ones out is harder. You need to make a 2x4 bridge across the window opening and pull the old frames out with a c-clamp. Another member posted a price in 2003 of $262.72 each + $35 shipping and $30 packing.

              hense JC Whitney DOESNT ship to Alaska, and they wont ship a cataloge here either... guess Alaskans dont buy things

                I've done both, new flocking in the salon windows & new windows in the galley & midberth. This was the best single improvement I've done for comfort on the boat. There are several old post on both projects in the motoryacht forum. It seems like a daughting project but is much easier than you imagine. The flocking may be possible for one person to do, with the admirals help each side took less than half a day. Good Luck

                        Those costs make more sense. You can also get the stuff from CR Laurance. They too have both sizes.

                            when I did this job last time I found the exact moulding for this in a shop here in Australia called Clarke Rubber, they specialise in rubber and special mouldings. It turns out that the moulding used in our boats is also the same as certain car door windows. I am sure they would have something like this, here is a site which may put you on the right track.
