I tried to coax them out...no go.... so hammer, chisel and crowbar. Not pretty by fast compared to being kind.

Wynne Enterprises made me 16 windows for around $3500....the expensive ones were the hinged ones...the sliders weren't too bad.

They are in Tuscumbia, Alabama..... 256 383-5040.

They make large numbers of windows for RVS, school busses, etc...and some for boats. Not top of the line but nearly as good for less than half the price.

With the Canadian dollarette in the toilet you may do well buying windows in Canada.
This is the I've done with custom windows built by Bomon of Montreal.
Inside and outside frames clamp together so there are no fasteners into the structure.
I'm extremely pleased with them or I wouldn't have used them on three boats over the last 20 years.

Some photos of my installation here
