zeehag is on a distinguished road
the large windows in these boats seem not to be an issue in seas as they are made for seas -- i havent had a sea break on these windows--i have 41 formosa with same kind windows -- yours are probably tempered glass--mine are plexiglass.
if you are concerned with the integrity of the windows during a passage, make a cover for them--either of wood or of plexiglass or acrylic to keep the integrity of the glass in the event of a hit by a very strong sea-----i had pacific seas breaking on my deck this trip i made to mazatlan from SD-- DIDNT BOTHER ANY OF THE WINDOWS. to get to windows, seas must be rather huge... ye wont be sailing in htose.
