resdog is on a distinguished road
I replaced my fixed sidelights on a Beneteau First24 with tinted acrylic and used the 3M VHB 2-sided foam tape (Very High Bond). Once I got the window positioned on the boat properly I used a laminate roller to make sure the bond was good between the acrylic and the boat. The windows are not going anywhere and I haven't seen a drop of water inside the boat. What it's going to do when the rail is under water next summer is another question. We've got a few months to see.
