Default I need opinions about my windsceens

I bought a set og Gaffrig flip up windscreens. The area ahead fo the helm is curved. The windscreens are straight. One edge of the windscreen or the hinge will hang out in the open. Here are some before and after pics.

I like these things. I just don't think I have a flat enough surface on my boat to mount them

Payton,
I hate to say it but they look weak against your curved molded fairing.

I also don't think they are going to work that well.

Great boat!

That's a tough call Mark. I might try and go for something that is detachable, with some kind of fancy hardware. There are some clear plexiglass ones out there too. It wiill cost some dough, but maybe a plexi custom fit to snap onto your cockpit cover snaps, or change them out to the little twisty-fittings that Fountain uses to attach the back of their covers.
