When we got back down to our boat this winter ,we found that on of our fixed ports
(plexiglass ) had a crack in it from the top to bottom ,a very straight and slight crack . The boat had been stored on boat stands while we were away and the side that cracked was in the direct sunlight all day. It gets pretty hot here in Curaçao. Cannot figure out why it cracked , the glass was new in 2007. We went to a plexiglass / lexan
dealer to purchase
a replacement glass . He told us about this product that he sold that you would inject with a syringe .Said it would be as strong as the original plexiglass once it cured and it wouldn't leak. Well to take the easy way out ,we purchased and applied it ,it only cost 18 guilders (10 US ).
Still not feeling great about heading offshore
again without the new glass installed ??? Does anybody have any experience with this plexiglass glue ? Also in replacing the glass would you use plexiglass or lexan
. The only lexan available on Curaçao is clear ,so we would have to purchase
and install one of those tint kits that they use on car windows .
