I was down in Kinsale on Sat. and saw the 8m being launched. Lovely jubliey! You could if you werent to fussy (with a couple of pints) sleep in the bow locker. Its hugh! We've only gone and ordered a 7m Excaliber and am looking forward to blasting around the place in it! Its mainly for diving though. Should be out in April. Will have a new designed console thats a bit narrower for us awkward divers. will post pics when she is up and running.
When were rich and famous we will have to go for a inboard diesel. Like em, Love em!
To answer your question the "windscreen" is attached just above where the handrail is attached to the console.
