Re: Lexan/polycarbonate vs acrylic

I agree- great questions.. (and timely)- I'm going to replace my windows with acrylic and bought both VHB tape and may also use Dow 795 (also happen to have a tube of that), but I'm hesitant to not reinstall with nuts and bolts. I know of another Olson 30 that used just the Dow 795, but for some reason that seems risky. I know I have a long way to go learning about singlehanding, and I just did a 120 nm round trip (and could NOT sleep) but is that stuff so good that nuts/bolts are no longer needed?
