The cabin window frames on my Starwind 19 are cracked/broken and leaking. I''ve heard new plastic frames can be made but have had no luck finding someone who can do it. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to locate such a business. Thanks.

Check your local yellow pages under Plastics-Rods, Tubes, Sheets, Etc.-Supply Centers (or similar). Also, many Auto Glass replacement places can do this. Just bring in the old for them to measure thickness and size. Sometimes there is a range of tint darkness available to choose from and types of plastics available with lexan being the most durable and expensive (but limited tint) and plexiglass (most likely choice) being more affordable and available. Next problem - the window seals/sealing. Set them in marine grade silicone. Don''t use polyurethane or you''ll never get them out again!
