Sea Gull, we went with Motion Windows/Peninsula Glass as well. Jeff was great to work with.

Detail where the aft head wall divides the stb window and they will proportion the glass to have the frame align with the wall and mirror the layout for the port side.

The "clear" we chose matches the existing glass and has somewhat of a tint naturally.

Got the port window in before winter arrived. The stb will be one of the first exterior projects come spring. In the mean time the are plenty of items to address on the inside.

Just picked up my new windows from Peninsula Glass today. They look very nice. I ordered with slight tint. $1,400.00. The existing windows had leaked slightly over the years, but boat has been kept under cover so damage has been mnimal. I am in the hopes that the unseen dryrot is also minimal. The deciding factor to replace them was when the Admiral tossed a dock step onto walkway and cracked the window. Now that I see TG has raised the bar with his craftmanship, he has motivated me to perhaps do likewise. This may inded be more than a weekend job now.

Just replacing the glass with grey lite 14. 9 windows with me taking them out and installing them, $2,800.00 That quote is from glass doctor in Daytona Beach. I got higher quotes elsewhere. I would like a dark tint not laminated..

Does anyone know of a place near me? Palm Coast, Daytona, St. Augustine? I feel like I’m being ripped off because I’m a woman?

I hear ya Sam! I just don't have the time right now to dive into that particular project. Hope you achieve results similar to TG's.

Isn't that a fun project. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed ripping out the old wooden frames and scraping the conglomeration of numerous layers of sealants. Which included at least one misguided application of 5200.

But on the bright side, once it's done, 40 years of misery are behind you.

Looking good!!

It was a pip alright. Good thing our plan wasn't to simply replace the broken pane. There is absolutely nothing left of the tiny pieces of framing after scraping and breaking off for numerous hours. Where are you located Larry?
