I don’t know if they make them for Eliminator, but Shields is who makes those big wraparound windscreens for skater, MTI, RPM etc. they’re expensive, but they’re 3/4” thick and clarity is amazing, which is hard to do. I think $5k+ is what you’d be looking at for those.

may want to talk to UPD Plastics in Florida and see if they can make you something. Probably be cheaper and fit the boat better.

Im looking for help. I just bought a 2003 23ft Reinell. The drivers side windshield is gone. I am looking for a place to get a replacement, or if there is other boats that use the same windshield. Please and Thank you for your help.

I purchased the wraparound windshield for our 28 Skater from Jim Lee at Lee Aerospace. If they are good enough for airplanes, they are good enough for boats!
