I've sent them an email, & waiting their response. New would be best as they wouln't be as brittle.

I used them on my. Islander bahama 30...great product and service. ..no brainer Install and perfect fit...take paper off plexi immediately though...else its a problem once the sun hits it...follow marks instructions and you'll get awesome results...highly recommend this product and vendor.

I just got a quote from Mark's Plastics. Although they can make the frames they only sell them with complete windows from $690 to $920 a boat set. I can't justify the cost since I bought the whole boat motor & trailer for $1,000.:eek: I may just end up either leaving them the way they are, (they don't look bad at all) or making some frames that match the originals.

WW,
i think you have gone far beyond the boat purchase price with all your up grades .
i think you need to look at what you boat is worth now.

i will email them and see if they will do a group buy on one window at a time .
one month we get 4 people to buy the port rear window and 2 months later we do a buy for the starboard rear window

Your kindness far exceeds any expectations of this frugal sailor! Please do not. It's not that I can't afford to buy these frames I can, it's just like I said "I can't justify the cost". I requested only to buy the frames without the windows in them for a reduced price but Mark's Plastics won't play with that.

Hey! I'm getting ready to make some windows myself for my Spirit 6.5. Material cost estimate will be roughly $300 in total cost. I'm going to use material from a place called Boat outfitters. I've already measured and calculated my material usage. The smaller windows can be cut out of the scrap leftover from making the larger ones.
