dw, you still with us?
"I just don't know how strong the stock glass (safety glass with a laminate in it like a car safety glass) really is. Any ideas on this?? Thanks!"
Couple of years ago I was helping to replace a set of portlights with new exact replacements from Mark Plastics. My friend was baffled at how to get the old ones out, because the glazing sits in 1" wide plastic channel that in turn is heavily siliconed into the inch thick cabin side and whatever wasn't leaking didn't want to budge. I said "Let's just knock 'em out and implode the frames" and he said no, that's Lexan, you can't just knock it out.

I took the standard 16" ball peen hammer, ball side out, and went "tink" just from my elbox, backhand. The acrylic, very much not Lexan, portlight blew right out and we proceeded to blow them all out and implode the frames.

How strong are your portlights? Well...If you have a spinnaker or whisker pole "up there" somewhere and it decides to come visit the portlight under storm conditions one day....Doe anything less than 1/4" polycarbonate still seem reasonable to you?

When in doubt, go to a glazier, get a scrap of what you've got, put it in a vice and go "tink" with a ball peen hammer. If it survives, go "WHACK!" with the same hammer. When you get one that survives, that's the minimum glazing to look at.

Unless you're just daysailing with "ceiling and vision unlimited" type days.

Same things apply to glass, dw. Scratches less, smashes more easily, still no way to know the strength unless you know the material exactly. Or test it. Hopefully it has the greenish cast of "safety glass" to it, so it doesn't become daggers when smashed. (Or a logo in the corner?)

I think my husband and I eyed her at her at the Mass Maritime auction. I definitely got the impression she was well loved by the PO. I'm glad she found a good home.

If you want to PM me a link to the pics, I'd be interested in taking a look.

If it's the same boat, we had an email exchange with the PO, and my husband (I think) got survey info from him.

Ranger 33

Hey Guys,

I know this post is old but there is a lot of talk from many Ranger owners so figured I take a shot. I have found a 1976 Ranger 33 and was curious on value? It needs a top coat, bottom job, sails are in decent shape, motor is the original Atomic 4, and the boat is over all in okay condition, fresh water kept. What would a boat in that condition be worth, I know its a vague question but a ball park guess from a few people would help me out. Thanks.

They're asking 17-29,000 on Yactworld. 17 for an A4, 29 for a new diesel, which means 17 for an A4. Less the (ka-ching) retail price of the top and bottom jobs, give or take what "decent" sails might be, any other differences and the usual asking versus selling difference.

Compare those to the boat you're looking at, then see how motivated your seller is.
