    Assuming bayliner at the time use the same supplier as our 1990 4588, we had someone break our salon window with the bow of there sail boat (long story but we were at anchor and they were moving but blamed us!) the window turned into little pellets of glass. We have window tint film which actually was awesome as it keep all the pellets in place and used box tape on the out side to basic retain some form of a window to get back with out letting in the sun, water spray, etc.

      Glass that breaks into little "pellets" is tempered glass. Safety glass has two layers of glass sandwiched around a membrane to keep the glass together like a car windshield.

      The glass in our '86 3270 is tempered for the sides and rear windows. I'm not sure if the windshield is tempered or safety as there is no readable stamp or etching.

          I'm not so sure about the tempered but know it's not safety glass! I've had the windshields out in both of my last two and current boat to reseal. They use the same glass style for all the Bayliner's as near as I can tell. I'd hope it's tempered at minimum but didn't feel like whacking one to test The windshields are only about 1/4" glass with beveled edges. I've taken windshields out and resealed in 32xx and 4788 in case you have any other questions I might be able to help you out.

          Are you having a problem or just wondering?

            They are indeed "Safety Glass", in the fact that they are tempered... BUT I've never seen any that are "Laminated Safety Glass" like you'd find in a car.

            If it breaks in pellets, it's tempered safety glass, if those pellets hang in sheets... it's laminated safety glass.

              Yes that's what I meant when I said safety glass (laminated).

              I wonder if there are any other reasons of than cost laminated glass wasn't used especially on windshields. I can see on the sliding windows etc. but you can get pummeled by a wave....or maybe a lock master that throws a 50' line from 30' UP on your windshield!!

                I am just curious as I hope to be buying in the future and recalled a bad day 40 years ago with an old "homemade" troller in a big sea and a heavy tide and some regular glass pieces barely missing my face when a wave came thru the mid front window just port of the helm I was working as I tried to get us somewhere else as fast as possible.Thanks for all the replies.
