2000 MainShip 390 flybridge spray shield

Does any one know which supplier provided the factory spray shield for the 2000 390 fly bridge?



I have asked this previously, and many suggested having a local vendor create this, but am located in the Caribbean. No one has this capability due to the complex curves involved.


Mine was destroyed by Irma 2 years ago, and have been diligent about finding a solution during this time frame...however no luck.



Thank you in advance.

I wouldn't limit my search to the model year 2000. All of the 350's and 390's used the same windshield. A 34T or 34 HT might not fit, but anything from a 350 or 390 will be the same.

Don't limit yourself to fabricators in the Caribbean.

Thanks for the heads up on the 350 using the same spray shield as the 390.

Just looking for the vendor contact that did all these models of boats, if they are in business still, and can I order one and have it shipped to SXM.

Due to the complexities of the compound curves of the shield, it is near impossible to make a template. Every specialist says they need to see the boat, which is not possible.

390/350 fly bridge spray shield vendor?

Very surprised with as many of these boats that were built (I am told 350+) that no one has had to replace a fly bridge spray shield...and which supplier fabricated them for MainShip in Florida...

That's a tough one. That part may also be known as a venturi windshield, so you can try that search. I would search for a boat salvage yard that might be parting out the right model.

See if you can find a fabricator, then see if you can find a boat for sale close on Yachtworld. Now see if you can arrange the broker to have the fabricator look at that boat. You might need to offer a service fee to the broker and some drive time to the fabricator.
