Has the windshield on your boat seen better days? Are you fed up with looking through those scratches and around cracks? Not only are those cracks and scratches an eye sore, but they also pose a huge threat to you, your passengers and your boat.
Boat Windshield Materials
There are two mainly used plastic windshield materials which include acrylics and polycarbonates (more commonly known as Plexiglas and Lexan). Although both work well, Plexiglas is a little more expensive but stronger than Lexan.
Both Plexiglas and Lexan are sold at different varieties of thickness, color and sizes, so every customer has the ability to choose which material and size is right for their boat.
Your Boat’s Windshield Is Important
One of the most fundamental aspects of your boat is your windshield. Now, we know it looks just like a simple piece of glass, but it is so much more than that. Just like the windshield on the vehicle of your car, your boat windshield holds many purposes to keep you safe and out of harm’s way.
The Hazards of Small Boat Windshield Damages
If damage to your boat’s windshield is left unattended, many hazards can appear. Even the smallest crack or scratch can turn into a big mess very quickly. For example, let’s say you’re driving your speed boat around the lake for a quick joy ride even though your windshield is damaged. At high speeds, your broken boat windshield will start to shake and rattle, causing little particles to fly off, which could hit you or your passengers.
A boat’s windshield can also provide protection in conditions of driving rain, and can be an integral part of the structure in boats with a cabin, adding to the overall strength of the boat. If your windshield is damage, it can obstruct your view which could lead to an accident.
