I did talk to Aeromarine about the full windshield kit. $12-15,000. I am looking at converting a boat and was blown away how much that was. The more I rig and work on boats I completely understand why custom boats can cost so much to manufacture.

Brad, I know where you can get the Canopy's for real.. And probably for a good price... Call Peter at Skater 269-857-4308.... When I visited the factory last year he had a warehouse full of them... He even admitted to me that he over ordered and he was not sure if he could ever sell them all... I am sure he still has some and they are the real deal canopy's... Hope this helps...

Brad is leaving out that the KIT includes a deck section that has the complete register made for the windscreen all CNC cut so everything is 100% accurate and symmetrical. Then it includes a optically clear windshield that Aero Marine spend big $$ making the tooling.

Price what it cost to make this stuff, exclude the computer design time cost, and you will spend about 40-50K to make this. Getting it all for a fraction is the smartest way to go.

Look at this windshield and see if this works for you. The contact info is in the thread. The cost is reasonable.
