'94 Lagoon 42 w/ Leaky Windows

Hi all
We have an older Lagoon-1994 42'cat and have noted that the windows are leaking. This cat has a dome main saloon and the most unusual windows ever. They are very oddly shapped-really weird. The are fixed and somewhat scratched, but are leaking. No visible area to work on. From what I have read, there is no easy way to fix this. Basically, the window must be removed and re set. I would be really worried about removing these windows. they are curved right into the whole superstructure of the catamaran. Anyone ever try this? any other remedies?

thanks a bunch
carol d

Check the thread on how to have sexy windows. There is a TON of information available.

It's not really too bad a job, you'll have to remove the windows, make new, and then reset them. Maybe one full weekend, do it before the iterior wood is ruined.

Lots of catamarans have this problem. Virtually every Leopard that is 4-5 years old needs the two big salon windows reset.

1994 lagoon cat leaky windows

hi carol,
i am a marine window fabricator with over 30 years experience and the only way to remedy your problem is to remove windows and replace them with newly formed windows...forms must be made off of windows prior to removing them so new windows will fit correctly...its no easy job and definetely not for someone without the proper experience...do not use polycarbonate...best formed windows are fabricated from acrylics... SIKA-FLEX products are the best adhesives for new installations.
