RE: Vegetation in my Window Tracks???

I had the same problem on mine, keeping the weep slots clear is a problem our high rainfall and humidity weather. A friend had some canvas covers made for his sliding windows I copied them, they work fine. We leave them on while we are not on the boat and remove them while we are cruising. The tops slide into a grooved track over the window frame and keep water off of the entire window assembly, the sides and the bottoms are held in place by snaps.

Oh yeah, great idea!* The boat has snaps all around the opening part of the sliding windows but whatever used to snap on is long gone.* I'll have to add this to my (long) list of canvas projects!
