Grand Banks Window Replacement

1981 GB 36' Classic Trawler.
The sliding windows are leaking, the channels in which the glass slides are completely deteriorated, and the wood framing is rotting...and some panes are cracked.
Does anyone know of a source for pre-made replacement windows for a GB?
Thank you. Jay

Try Wynne Industries Inc. 256-383-5040.
I had them build the center tilt out windshield window on our Manatee. We are very pleased with the quality of construction.

Search for the recent thread "replacing teak decks" where there are photos and the supplier's name for replacement windows on a MT 44 in Seattle. The supplier is in Port Coquitlam BC. The window system is similar to yours.

regarding window replacement. I did is on my GB36 483 from 1976. I ordered alu frames with double glass. I removed also the back entrance master bedroom and also installed a alu door en sliding panel. I live in Belgium and we travel a lot in Holland. We have a lot of rain and now the window leaking stopped. Still you need a very solid alu window because when the boat is moved out of the water the hull allways moves a bit and that can cause leakage from window.
We have a inner and outher frame that comes together with screws. Maybe 500 pieces for all the windows. I can send pictures if you like.
