Angry My Hustler Windscreen Broke

I uncovered it and found it broken I cant tell what broke it. It doesn't look like anything hit it and there isn't any stress cracks/star looking cracks at the bolt hole. It was cold the night before and hot (80)the next morning when I uncovered it when I found it broken .The riv nut/blind nut had pulled out of the glass on the side, It looks like the nut wasn't spread out very good and didnt grab,Maybe the heat made it expand/bend and the bolt/nut let it move and crack? Its weird its a 2001 boat.I am real anal about letting people touch it,but ya never know when I am not in the boat.

I called Hustler there telling me 4-8 weeks on a replacement at about 2k.They also told me that the holes might NOT line up and I will probably have to glass up the old holes for the refitment on the new one The same people are not making it for them and there made different MaryEllen said she was going to call me back to day on how long.

I also have sent picks to Shields and Yachtwindows Inc. to get a price quote and how long it will take.They will have to make a mold from my old one.

Viplex Corp in Melbourne FL. prev manfg is out of biz.



Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Rob

Cool

Rob, If it's below 50 degrees and you accidentally hit it or put stress on it they will crack.We were running in october of 05 at the thousand islands. As my buddy was getting off the boat his foot hit the screen and she cracked.The holes did not line up. I made a deal with Joe for a new one,Less than you were quoted.

My suggestion......

quit bending fat chicks over your windscreen!


Seriously, take it to a plexiglass shop and have them glue it and buff it out. It will leave a very faint line but you'll have $2k in gas money. At least run it that way until your other comes in.

Why not ask them to not drill the holes and do it yourself, that way it will fit perfect??
