Re: C&C 24 Former Yard Derelict - First Sailing Season Afloat in 10 Years

Hi Nancy, if you have the flush mount windows, butyl tape is not going to do the job for you as it isn't adhesive enough. This is one of my summer projects as well, and I bought some GE stuff that they use for gluing windows into skyscrapers, it's UV stable, adhesive, flexible etc. I am travelling at the moment so can't remember exactly what it is, will take a look when I get home and let you know. Great boats the 24'

Hi Paul,
I've done some reading and I agree with you re the butyl tape. I would be interested to know what it is you have found as an adhesive. \
I understand that the the fiberglass and plexiglass expand and contract at different rates and the adhesive needs to be flexible enough to accomodate both.
South shore yachts recomends an epoxy (MS590) that they say does that and I have found it from a wholesaler for aprox $50 per 40ml tube. SS says you need 1 tube per window. Unfortunately you need to buy the material from them (SS) to get the instalation instructions they offer but they're too pricey for my budget It also requires the use of an epoxy mixing gun which I have found for about $70.
I have already removed the windows and dropped them at a fabricator, I can get the windows fabricated in 3/8 plexiglass/acrylic (which is what they are) for $135 per window(not smoked) . $$$$$$$$
I can't really save much by skimping on the material so why take the risk of having to do it again????????
I have an article on port light replacement that is fairly detailed so when the material arrives I guess I'll give it my best shot
I will let you know how it goes and pass on whatever I learn
Hope to chat again
Thanks
Nancy

I started to replace my windows and then cut a deal with the local plastics supplier so that I am going the prep work and he is doing the install. He also uses the GE product, but uses double sided glasing tape on the insie edge of the frame to hold the window and reduce the oozing of the adhesive. He also paints the inside edge of the plastic black so that from the outside you cant see any bubles or voids.

Yep, I read a similar thing regarding the glazing tape and painting it black (feathering I believe it is called). Just keeps everything tidy.

Question Re: C&C 24 Former Yard Derelict - First Sailing Season Afloat in 10 Years

Wow, I never even thought of seeing thru to the adhesive and I'm not even using the tinted stuff!
When you talk about the tape is that to hold everything in place until things cure?
I'd really like know the name of the GE adhesive you are going to use before I invest in the MS590
The windows are being cut and will be ready by Monday. One of the openings however came out a bit rougher than the other, Im going to sand it a bit???? I was afraid old adhesive might affect the bond. I'm not sure if I need to do more than that?

Re: C&C 24 Former Yard Derelict - First Sailing Season Afloat in 10 Years

It's GE Silpruf SCS2000. Structural silicone adhesive with +/-50% movement capacity. *disclaimer* I haven't actually used the stuff, but I am told it is the right stuff for the job.
I think it was under $20 for a 300ml tube and can be applied with a standard gun.
