Windscreens

Where can I get a new windscreen made? I know some of you have made your own but I dont fancy mucking it up so thought I would go to a professional.

windscreen

i have been looking for screens for my single jockey console . I reckon I may be able to adapt an upright motorbike screen , but the stainless rail to fit around it would be the expensive bit , as it would probably have to be custom made .

If it needs to be thermoformed polycarbonate, make sure you're sitting down! I need to get some 10mm screens made and I'm being quoted IRO 1500 quid!

about screens

When I was at the Dublin/Irish Boat show, I saw a nice looking Lencraft.
This was a fairly decent looking boat but with regard to the fairing/windscreen, any forward lunge in the boats ocupants will result in splitting their head open on the edge of the wind screen.

Its amazing that they have not got this figured out yet....
Furthermore, you can imagine trying to get home in a hurry with the windscreed shattered by the poor occupants forehead and the incoming salt spray adding to his/her misery...

It strikes me that these boat builders should have more upstairs...
It needed an Outer steel protecting rail Grab or bar.
