Doug (Old Buddy) and I went today to tear down the windshield on My Other Honey. Big nasty job. We ran into Tom Crossman(Classic 69). He was buffing her out for spring. It will be awhile before I get to the buffing stage. Always great to see fellow CCCC members. Lots of work left to do, but the shield is down. Thanks Doug .

Glenn,

I cut the center section of headliner down. I am going to install a zipper when I put it back up. We did not break any bolts or screws. I am taking a different track on reassembly. Since I will have future access, I am using bolts in all the holes. I will be using very large fender washers and ny-lock nuts. I did not cut any wires and plan on having someone in the salon to keep tension on the wires. One of my concerns is if the side rails are in-place and tight, how will those angle brackets on the windshield go into the side rails? I am hoping there is enough give over the length to allow us to slide them in. They came apart that way, but certainly they will be more secure now(i hope):)

The angle brackets slid in easily for me

I hope you are using this product, Q turned me on to it, it goes along way. Are you taking the frames  off the forward windows?

Keep up the good work, just got my new motor and bellows for my vacuflush, not looking forward to be on my knees in the galley hold for hours.

Thanks Glenn

Hello All,

First, thanks for all the contributors on this thread - I really appreciate the pictures as I have a 1967 42 with a hard top that requires removing the whole mess up top as well. It was all removed once when it was moved from Sandusky, OH to the Quad Cities (Mississippi River)... they used copious amounts of 5200, and didn't quite get it right.

Anyway... I'll keep a look out on this thread - lots of pics as you continue, please. Knowing the amount of 42 owners that complain about leaks that are hard to find, this will be invaluable.

Ok,here is an update. We have test fitted the mahogany supports for the aluminum side supports and now have bed them in place. We are using Sika 291 and a bunch of clamps.

After the Sika set up, we fit the aluminum rails  that form the top...

Next weekend will be the big test. We will dry fit/test the front s...

Did you or someone raise the 'Box" on the starboard side of helm?

Great  photos .  very helpful foe me  who is afraid to do his Side Windshield  but is gathering courage every day.  I see your side windshields are off.  What do you plan on using to "caulk" or hold the glass in position as well as keep water out on the channel that the glass sits ion.  Glenn Woudenberg put me on to something that might work.  Jeff...........

Glenn,  Didn't this vintage 42 come with a raised "box" there?   I thought that the  white formica meant this type of box.  But what do I know?  Jeff

Glenn, Mine is a 1970. The 1970's had an equipment box there instead of the seat.

Jeff,

I purchased the rubber glazing that Glenn used. I will let you know how it works. Glenn said he also used some caulk. I am hoping I do not have to.

BTW. My boat was at GPYC early in it's life. It was out on the far wall and named PACO. It has goofy railings around the stern. I have never seen another on with them. They are UGLY:)

Sterling,

Terrific.  Really interested in how it works out.  Hope well.  I think that your 42 may have been named GEORGIA.  Say this because I remember that she had railings such as you describe.  War story---Group of about 10 boats went to Catawba Island way back before hardly anyone had radar.  Caught in fog downriver.  Some rafted off a buoy until a radar equipped boat came to rescue.  Everyone followed our hero.  However it was quite a  long time and some decided to start the party early.  It was also back when one announced call signs when using the radio.  GEORGIA call sign was announced (after a very long pause) as "ah, ah, ah.....9".`  Made it safely but have laughed with the owner to this day.

Jeff...........
