Interestingly enough, I broke (smashed) the forward port salon window in my 46' Roamer Riviera last Friday morning and have been musing over how to replace same. It was the one piece shaped similarly to a guillotine blade hanging over the sofa that made me decide to replace all eight of them with Lexan window plates. Thank the powers that no one was in the salon.
I have had little flakes come off the sliders to the sides of the helm station and those little flakes will provide vicious little cuts for the unwary.
Safety glass replacement was suggested followed in the same breath by the thought that it would probably crack easily. My glass man then opined that Lexan would be the strongest path to follow and the most costly. I'm having the windows measured for fitting next week. I am concerned over possible scratches accumulating in the Lexan. Has anyone replaced these windows with safety glass or Lexan who could offer their experience along these lines?
Hat4349, when you say the "whole nine yards" do you mean all the salon windows or all windows throughout your Roamer?
On a side note, my brother Ralph was a blister gunner during WWII in a B- something or other over the Pacific and always used that term. One day years ago I asked him what, exactly, did that mean? His answer was that "50 caliber machine gun shells came in a 27' coil and you put the 'whole nine yards' in the other plane." (Just in case anyone thought it had something to do with football!)
Thanks for posting your request.
