JLBJR is on a distinguished road
Follow this link to a tech sheet on Sabre's site. it will show you how to rebed the lexan into the aluminum frame and then how to use a combo of Butyl tape and caulking. Even if you don't have a Sabre, most of these frames are similar.

I just completed this project, it came out great and I have a dry boat, at least for now.

After removing the interior screws, I used a dull putty knife and a razor knife to separate the frame from the boat and a lot of rubbing to remove whatever the last person used to caulk the window in. It is important to have a clean surface before you add the tape. One other thing, be sure to put painters masking tape around the opening before you add the caulking, it really makes clean up a lot easier.

Good luck.
