When I got my glass tinted on mine I went to the tint shop and took all the glass out of the frame and had it tinted.. Perfect job and no lines around the edges

I agree. My former PS190 had the side windows tinted by the PO. The tint made it hard to see the skier when I turned around to pick them up or to give instructions when teaching newbies. I had to either kneel or keep them further away from the boat to see them. Yes, it looked cool on a white/black MC with a black tower, but to me it was worthless. If it had been on the windshield I would have removed it.

This is my malibu with 20%. It really comes down to how dark are you comfortable with. This should give you a good idea of how 20% will look on the water. I will have my MC done on friday with pictures to help.

No tint

i like the no tint, to me adding tint looks desperate like your trying to add anything in everything to your boat.

I say do it. Love mine, wouldn't change it. I took the entire frame apart and pulled the glass, so no seams. Also a great time to powdercoat the windshield frame.

I absolutely LOVE the way tinted windows look on a boat. Every car I have bought in the last 25 years went straight from the dealership to the tint shop. Tint really improves the look of everything. I never look through the windows in the boat - always sit above them. Limo tint wouldn't affect my view at all.

Great idea about pulling the windows out of the frame for tint too.

Easyest way to tint the wind shield on the boat, is to pull the windshield off the boat, take 15-20 mins to remove. Much easier to tint off the boat and faster. I pulled mine off to it to a tint shop I use and 1.5 hrs later, keft the tint shop with 20% tint on it- 5-6 hrs to tint the boat, I go find a better tint shop
