Yes, I sold the boat back in 2015 and changed gears - literally.  We bought a 42' Grand Banks trawler.  However, I did love our Commander.  We had it for 12 seasons and traveled on it most every summer.  I just got to the point of wanting something more comfortable and reliable for long distance cruising for a couple weeks at a time. Good luck with your windscreen!

When I replaced my bridge windscreen on the 35 Commander, I had it fabricated by Allied Plastics in Toledo.  I had mine done 10+ years ago, but it looks like they're still in business.

I took the old one down to them to use as a template for making the new one and was happy with their work.

Another option is Laird Plastics.  They have an operation in Warren, MI on Groesbeck.  I had the windscreen pieces for my current boat cut by them - all the pieces were flat, not shaped like on the Commander. 

From a cost perspective, you're probably better off going with Allied if it's not too inconvenient to travel to them.

Good luck!

I bought it in June of 2017 , 

I spent a lot of time buffing the superstructure out.

Since October of 2017 I've been doing a huge amount of restoration work. 

Currently the whole boat is gutted but hope to be done with the major glass work by this coming spring
