April 23, 2009

Our flybridge windscreen has had a crack through it ever since we bought the boat. Having mostly completed the higher-priority issues, I finally had a new windscreen fabricated by Total Plastics in Baltimore.

I brought them the old windscreen (in two pieces), and they used it as a template. One interesting point... The old one was hard, inflexible, and curved to fit the shape of the bridge. They explained that the inflexibility was likely due to age, and that the new one would not be curved when I came to pick it up. It would need to be "cold-fitted", drilled, and mounted. This was concerning to me, but all turned out well. It was a perfect fit. They did a great job, and I'd certainly recommend them.
