I accidentally broke the starboard sliding glass window yesterday and was wondering if anyone has ever had to replace one. It looks to be a straight window without a curve in it. I'm thinking I could take the pieces to a local glass dealer and use the dimensions to make a new one. Does anyone have a better idea, or know of any marine salvage company that might have one?
I am currently in the process of replacing the sliding glass next to the helm of my 31' 1968 Commander Hard Top. Chris Craft used clear safety glass. Any glass place should be able to make you one as long as you have a pattern to give them
I had the same question earlier and here is what my response was when I had the same question on the fourm…
Thanks for the advice everyone. I am relieved to see this is a doable job and with Greg's step-by-step instructions I have a good idea on how to proceed.
Thanks to Greg for writing or reposting the best description of window assembly ever! It will come in handy when I get around to figuring out why my sliding side screens and windows are so hard to move. As if being nearly 50 years old isn't reason enough :-)
