Marine Trader Windows????

I need to replace a broken window pane. teak frames inside and out. I cant see and place where the frame is screwed to anything -No bungs! Are these glued in somehow? I do see where the fixed pane is silicon glued to the fwd fixed pane. Maybe I should pry the inner frame off first? Then the fixed pane will come out when I pry the outer frame off???? HELP! Thanks

The outer frame holds the glass in. The inner frame is screwed to the cabin sides from the outside. Look for bungs in the corners and along each side of the outer frames. Each piece of frame has screws near the joints and spaced about 6-8 inches along each side. I had to locate my exterior bungs by sanding the frames. A multi tool makes faster work of separating the frame from the cabin wall. May also be used to cut stripped screws. And those that won’t back out because the material they are threaded in is rotted or otherwise damaged.

I just saw this thread. I have replaced a couple on my marine trader. Believe it or not, installation varies from year to year. Mine is an 86. Yours?

I am just beginning this process on my 84 Golden Star, what a tedious job! The multi tool is a definite help. Do you have any other tips such as solvents or sources for the window channels? The felt in several of the channels is rotted away.

Piano wire cuts old Taiwanese caulk pretty good.

That is a good thought, I was also going to see if I could get a specialty tool that I saw an auto glass guy use.
