Windscreen for a single console?

Has anyone put one on? I know Humbers have them.

I'm thinking of installing one on mine, it has the standard Halmatic single console that is similar on the Arctic, Atlantic and Pacific.

Wadya think?

My osprey had one fitted, stops a lot of the spray hitting back of the GPS etc and your face!!

Although the guy had taken it off when i bought boat, but gave me the screen.

I am currently using this as a pattern to make a new one. I am making it taller than the original.

I have bought the perspex and will post photos of how it turns out!!

I had one on my last boat which had a single seat jockey console, it came up about 10" above the level of the top of the console & worked great keeping a suprising amount of wind & water off. The screen was simplicity itself, basically a piece of lexan with 2 creases in it to go along the front & around both sides of the "dash"

Is there somewhere that will make one up if i give them the dimensions, it will need to be shaped to fit the curve of the console?

Be interested to hear how you get on as I think the standard Osprey screen is going to be one of the things on my "needs to be changed list"...

Couldn't be easier to make. Blow a heat gun over a 1/4" peice of Lexan where you want the seam to be and apply gentle pressure. It takes a while to get soft but then will start to bend pretty easily. You can also use a micro torch to smooth and clear up the rough cloudy edges.

Yup, bolt the unbent, flat sheet to the front of the console, warm up the corners & bend it around the console.. Perfect fit

So obviously the front of the console has a curve, if i bolted a sheet of Lexan to the console would i then have to heat the whole sheet to get it to follow the curve?
