Aluminum windows from 1985 Grand Banks Motoryacht

Does anybody need the aluminum windows from a 1985 Grand Banks motoryacht? I'm in the process of replacing. These are from hull 928. The aluminum itself is in good condition. The outer snap-on trim piece has some galvanic corrosion from the stainless snaps, especially towards the bottom of the frame. The majority of the paint is or has already flaked off; there is sealant remnant (silicone) on the back side of each of the frames. I'm currently in the process of replacing, so am removing them one by one. They all need tracks; they are completely destroyed or gone entirely. The glass itself is in poor condition, delaminating, etched, and a handful of panes cracked - I'm thinking to throw it away. The aluminum will go to scrap if nobody claims it. Must pay shipping or pick up from Boston.

Hi Westiculo,
Would you know if they would fit a 1988 42 GB Classic?
Thanks

Hey,
I really don't know. the only thing we could do is compare measurements. Do you currently have the aluminum frames installed, or was the '88 done in wood again?

Hey Wes,
Thanks for the reply...yup, made of wood; which seems to add to the water infiltration. I know I'll need to rebel the windows, was just thinking alum would be better than the wood.
Thanks
