Find windshield filters on "wrong way" (forward-leaning) pilothouse windows unnecessary while operating the boat.

But if they fail in high winds you will loose your screens. We lost two screens and a door covering on the starboard side one winter and I moved over to twist fittings to attach my screens.

Let me clarify, I was not talking about tinted glass but putting tinted or clear UV barrier film on laminated glass.

I've had it done on many, many boats over the years and seen only one window shatter that had film on it. And I can't say with 100% certainty that it was the film that was the cause.

Heat is one of the issues and some films retain/transfer more heat than others.
