I considered the same thing when redoing my 28 Cigarette. I had the original windshield but it was a bit tall and had no glass in it. I have a friend with an Apache and was surprised to find that Apache built their farings out of aluminum.

I know a very good aluminum fabricator who took my windshield to use as a template...it cam out very well, you can see pics on http://www.thunderboatalley.com/olsen_2.htm

I had an 1980 excaliber I built one out of aluminum. But we could fabricate out of fiberglass or aluminnum, we are doing one on a Nova III right now and one to do on a 85 fountain. Give us a call (586) 598-4077 Vicious marine Ask for Bill! Thank's
