Thanks guys. All good points. Like most accidents, it was a combination of random factors that caused it and agreed, I don't plan to run regularly in water liker that. However, I think I need to do something to improve what I have. I like both the fairing and the Scotshield suggestion. That video says it all. The fairing seems complicated, but looks pretty cool.

Don't use Lexan. When it breaks it doesn't go to Little pieces. When it breaks it goes to machetes
Im saying as in a stock glass replacement. Getting a custom one made would be great. But Big $$$

Just my 2 cents but look at the way the windshields are made on the fastech. There are no supports from the frame back to the hull on the curved part. I almost dropped the glass out of 271 fastech in the ocean from the frame flexing like mad. Its a design issue
