Privilege owners - crazed glass

Has any prvilege owners had to replace their cabin windows ? mine are so badly crazed you cant see through them . They appear to be glued in without any fixings , and I guess we will have to make moulds to curve them . any advice would be appreciated.

What generation 37... Jeantot or Alliaura? Alliaura Privileges use Lexan glued in and, as far as I can tell, they don't craze

It is a Jeantot and they are definitely glued in , all the lewmar hatches have gone the same way. The Aussie sun doesnt do them any favors.

All my Lewmar hatches have crazed but not the saloon windows after nearly 6 years in the Caribbean. The saloon is almost permanently protected by the batyline covers provided by Privilege so maybe that is the reason they are still good.

See page 5 of the other Privilege thread for window replacement instructions
