    Windshield? Usable?

    I would like some general feedback glass windshields.

    How many people actually use them?

    Are they usable or does their angle just distort things?

    If it started to rain, could you use it?

    What height works good for you? (any style) I hear stories of wind being deflected right in your face if it's not the right height.

    Any boat models come to mind that got glass windshields right? (30 foot range)

    Thanks for the reply Chris232. Seems like they all are at eye level unless you are standing.

    At 6'2" I haven't been in a boat yet, that didn't put the wind right in my face. Large cruisers are the only exception.

    In my 272 Formula I usually look over the windshield. Luckly enough , its angle is such , my hair will blow around but I don't get hit in the face with wind
    I love it
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.
