I understand there is information available on removing the hardtop and windshield on the 42 Commander somewhere in this site. I went through the "files" but didn't see anything (although I certainly could have missed it). Can someone direct me to the removal information? Photos instructions etc would be helpful. The marina will be doing the removal so the more information I can give them the better.

Hi Tim.  A blue print with instructions on the windshield teardown from Chris Craft came with my 1967-42-Com.  I mailed them to Char Pike and she had them scanned and put into the Club Files. You might want to contact her as to where she placed it in the files. She is most helpful. Best of luck.      Bob

Thanks Bob

In the library files section under 42 Commander for the windshield teardown.

Superdisc has lots of information regarding transporting Commanders.  I have limited computer access so I am not able to retrieve information easily.  Hopefully some of the 42 owners can help out.

Thanks Charlene,

The superdisk has been ordered.

Thanks Dick

I'm planning to preform that operation on my 42 this spring.  Let me know if you run into anything different.

Thanks

I had to remove the windshield and one piece of advice I can give is make sure you use a Reed And Prince screw bit. Also, the old sealer they put on is tough! Try your best not to bust a window like I did... 

Unfortunately I have to have the marina do it. They also expressed concern about breaking glass...

Thanks to everyone that's contributed to this thread so far... I won't be doing this until probably next year, but it's on my list.  Unfortunately, my hardtop was taken off once before when the boat was moved from Ohio to Iowa... when the put it all back together, the used copious amounts of 5200... *sigh*  

For those that are doing this... please post some pictures and some details of the time involved to do it.  

Thanks!

Well, after an engine replacement, I'm back to pondering the removal, cleaning, and resetting of the hardtop on our 1967 42 Commander.  I tried the link to the Google site above (Dick's post), but it comes up as not found.  Someone in the club had done this operation while in the water and I thought had some detailed info... anyone want to step forward, or does anyone know the person that did this already?  Perhaps it's not so difficult, but I'd love some guidance and tips so I can better prepare before I take a deep dive into this project in spring....

Hi Chris,
