Looks like to much weight as others have mentioned. On Sunday a crew member was caught by me climbing over the drop in door for the walk thru and using the screen to balance himself instead of removing the drop in door fortunately no damage but

I've got the same issue on mine. I've contacted TaylorMade and they'll replace the whole frame (MC part no 5151000)- I didn't ask how much that would cost. They also referred me to Ocean Dynamics if I wanted just that part. I contacted Ocean Dynamics and they said I could get it replaced (or possibly fixed) by shipping it in and $75-$125. I'm going to wait until Fall.

Crack

Glad you posted this so I'll know where I can get mine fixed or a replacement if it ever happens to mine. I'm always telling people not to lean on the windshield or use it to stand up and they look at me like I'm crazy. I think I should tape this picture to my dash.

Is the window between that screw and the outer frame?

If not - I would remove that screw - drill through both frames on the window - then I would use a counter sink on the outer surface, drop a longer screw through to a washer and lock nut and snug that up to close the crack down.

probably not going to "fix" the crack.

This will probably work, on the top screw. The windshield support screw, that goes into the frame, should not be to long. I'm confident, the slightly to long screw, caused my windshield to shatter.

The twisting and pounding, of the windshield, within the frame...is probably the culprit. It's fixable, parts are available, for the handyman.

I wouldn't ignore it. A windshield is very expensive, and a real pain...to replace.

Windshield problem on a Mastercraft? God help you, because Mastercraft won't. Good luck, I truly feel for you.
