Windshield wipers

I have a new purchase 2008 Mainship Trawler 34 foot. Does anyone know who the Manufacturer is of the windshield wiper arms or what replacement blades they take? Iíve bought two sets and they just fly off. Thanks so much. Kraig

This is not precisely responsive to your question, butÖ
I have had great success with rain-x on the outside and rain-x anti fog on the inside. Took off the wiper...
I have a bit of a Pilothouse roof overhang and forward angled windshield, which also help in light rain.

Here's what I've switched to on our '08 34 HT.
Straight blade SS backing blades for flat windshields from NAPA.
My local NAPA guy had a box of adapters to fit the stub on the arms. I used a small SSBolt / nut to attach to the blade and had to add some washers as spacers.
