Lexan thickness and frames.
The boat in question is a Starwind 22.
I can't seem to be able to upload a pic at the moment. If you ggole, you will quickly find one. As far as the thickness for the Lexan, I'm looking at 3/8 and the dimensions are roughly 20 1/4 by 3 3/4 inches. Two are rectangular and the other two have a slight angle sloping forward on a 45.
As far as framing them, I have no idea. I'm just going to cut the new Lexan to the same dimensions as the original + frames. The frames busted into pcs. I plan on Drilling holes into the Lexan that match up with the holes that were through the frames, establish a decent seal and put back the ss hardware. I may have to caulk around the edges of the outside of the lexan.
SailingDog.... what did you use to cut the Lexan.... i'm thinking of tile/wet saw.
