I would like to remove and replace the salon windows on my 72 25' Sports Cruiser. Seams like it would be simple, but i'm stumped. There a a couple of screws which I would guess need to be removed but i'm not seeing how that would facilitate the removal of the windows. Any insight would be appreciated! Pictures below... and thank you in advance!

The upper or lower board on the inside needs to come off. It usually runs the length of the boat. The windows went in, they will come out.
The small screws are to stop the glass panel from moving forward and aft. It really doesn't do anything to hold them in.
do yourself a favor and go to
harbor freight and get a pair of suction cup grips
I would also suggest, from my own unfortunate experience, to use a Frearson head screwdriver, not a Phillips head driver. The Phillips head driver, as I understand it, does not seat deeply enough into the screw head slots and so the driver head slips out and strips the screw head.
Thank you all for the tips. doesn't look too bad once I get the Frearson bits :-)
