Windshield track snaps on a Meridian or Bayliner pilothouse?

I have a Meridian/Bayliner pilothouse that has a track around the out side edge of the windshield, does anyone know what snaps fit into this track to fasten the enclosure canvas/ glass to the windshield?

You'd probably get a better response on the Bayliner Owners Club site, as there are plenty of 4788/490 owners there.

More than likely there is a small rope sewn into the edge of the canvas which then slides into the track. Like the bolt rope on a main sail that goes into a groove in the mast or the boom.

I have it on my Monk, It's called awning track. Like Bob said a thin rope or cord is sewn into the hem of an awning or bimini, or windhield trim and slides into the track. it makes a good seal to keep out rain or wiind.

You probably need a bolt rope, try googling Sailrite and look for the size you need. It comes as an edging you sew on your canvas.

I don't know, his pun is better than my eyesight. On second look that track is flatter and wider than I first thought... forget the boltrope.

I found the correct snaps that fit the windshield track on a 490.
Thanks for the help.
