Ship, I made a replacement one out of a 36" piece of 1/4 Lexan purchased @ Lowe's. It cost me $36. You will need to take accurate measurements of the console and get some help heating and bending the Lexan. What I did was this:



Measured and cut it out to size

Using a propane torch, evenly heated both sides along the bend to round the console
Heated all edges to round them out
Drilled mounting holes and hit em' with the torch to prevent any cracking
Sealed joint with weatherproofing

Took about an hour, works great

ShinDig I may be interested in your windshield. My boat has the same console as the 27 contender.

HOTSPOT - I can't get the link to work. Where are you trying to send me?

As for making one myself, I can only wish I had the skill to do it and have it come out looking good. Usually what happens is I try to do something myself to save a few bucks, but then after it doesn't work I have to go out and actually buy it later. This, after I have already spent half of what it would have cost me to buy it new originally. So, I spend more total than it would have cost me to just buy the darn thing in the first place.

I replaced mine myself. The original wrapped around the corners by about 3". I had a piece of plexy cut to size and had the edges buffed/polished and I eliminated the wrapped corners. You can get quotes from a couple of glass suppliers. I drilled the holes myself by starting with a small bit and very gradully increasing the drill bit until I got the the size I wanted. It really is not difficult or expensive.

Ship,

Why not call Sea Pro and buy a replacement from them rather than cobbing together something that may fall apart at the worst possible moment.

If you are a smooth talker, try the company that makes them. They usually don't well retail but it may be worth a try.

Thanks for all of y'all's help. I called a few of these places, and one way or another I am going to get a new windshield from one of them. It amazes me what some of my local places want to charge. Anywhere from $125 to $400.

Just took the windshield off my 27 Contender for what it's worth. My console is the Tournament console which has a slightly larger footprint then the standard console offered in 2000. let me know if you need dimensions as I may be interested in selling it.

I re-did my 21' center console last year. I used this company out of Florida for my windshield, they did an excellent job! I had to send them my original windshield so they could template it. I think the total cost was around $200 for the windshield and shippping. You get what you pay for, I would go back to them in a minute. Good Luck!
