That s badluck!
Is there any light tint in that center glass and the rest of the windshield
Agree that a side glass would have been more costly and a lot harder to find!
Good luck!

Cant tell about the tint but when I took it to the glass shop today they said there would only be about three possible colors for safety glass and it wasn't the other two.

I also checked with my favorite dealer Chris at Boat House Marine and he suggested that any glass shop can handle and that its safety glass.

The good news is I am in for about $55 installed (in the frame). The bad news is that "IF" the glass doesn't come on the Thursday delivery truck, it will be next Tuesday.

The piece that broke out wasn't safety glass, it was tempered glass. You can tell by the fact that it broke all the way out.

Tempered glass is heat treated glass that is stronger and when broken shatters into small bits instead of shards. Safety glass is two sheets of tempered glass with a plastic film in between. Safety glass is used on car windshields. Tempered glass is used on the rest of the car (a few cars have safety glass on the other windows for occupant retention).

If it doesn't arrive in time, pull that center section out via the hinge pin and enjoy the weekend. I'm glad it is a cheap fix, but it's hard to feel lucky I am sure.

Was going to post up same thing as Table Rocker. Safety glass doesn't shatter and break apart last I checked. Looked tempered and tempered glass will be a bit more than $55. If you stick with the safety glass I am afraid they may not match up close enough.

I checked the video I took yesterday and those marks are there. Good catch though.. (I need to fix those )

Not sure its worth effecting my insurance for just this window, especially since Progressive actually dropped my rate this year. My hope the cost will be around or less than $100....
Ah hell. buy a new boat!

Sorry, mis-typed, the lady at the glass shop said tempered and that's what is ordered. She knows what it is because I gave her the frame with the shards still in it so she was able to get the thickness and see the tint.

I pulled the entire window before I swept up all the glass. That stuff was going everywhere!!

Does this mean the "no shoes" rule is put on hold for a couple weeks?

Good deal. At least it won't knock you out of any boat time either way.

By the way, you have added to my phobia of losing a windshield to a rock while towing. I will be making a windshield cover this winter.

Most pieces were Skittle sized and I swept up pretty good, but that might be a wise precaution.

I would love to see that cover.. I always fear the "lone rock" when I tow as well.
