Re: Making flush mounted acrylic replacement windows

Very nice!

One word of caution -- you need to strip all the residue of silicone off the frames. They sell chemicals that help with this. I'm re-doing some hatch lenses and am about tied with you progress-wise, so I don't have any specific feedback on a good product for that. I'm trying something I got at HomeDepot in a cylinder bottle with a spray top. We'll see how well it works.

New silicone does not stick to old silicone. This is the main reason Mainesail is so opposed to using silicone at all, if I remember correctly.


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
