Before the 80's I think Mastercrafts has this round plexiglass for a windshield. I looked in my owner's manual and a section that said you should clean only with a damp cloth and by the looks of my boat--the previous owner used only dry cloths. Is there any way to get these scratches out?

Thanks

I would like to know it if you find one. Mine is scratched too.

I think TAP Plastics sells polishing compounds that remove scratches.

Or Jeremy... do you think Finesse it from 3M would work?

There are several different polishing compounds designed specifically for plexiglas windshields. Try looking at www.aircraftspruce.com

Novus has a three step process that works well for plexiglass. It is avalable at better hardware stores. not hd

Check this out. Micro-Surface finishing products.
The Micro-Mesh kit will do the trick.

I have used the KR-70 kit with good results.
