Re: Mirrors on Boats

Thanks all for the very good information again...

I think glass would be a bit large for a floor to ceiling mirror about 6' tall. Acrylic is definitely not cheap but I think we can do a halfway mirror made of glass that is cheaper. Thanks MJ and MarkJ!

Humm...Marko, I think you've had about enough single-handing.

Re: Mirrors on Boats

why would anyone put:

1) glass mirrors in a boat when you are damn well sure they will break in a roll and cut off someones head or just be a general safety issue if they do break?

2) make a boats interior look like some disco narcissic RV sex bus thing?

if you need light, put some ports in.

formosas,ct, hardins, force like mine-- all were built with mirrors in the master berth.is an intersting concept--- dunno why they placed huge glass mirrors there-- but they do last nicely.....mine is 35 yrs old---1976. original. one of only things left on boat that is original, actually!!! is weird, isnt it!!

Re: Mirrors on Boats

I would think people would like to put up a nice bright framed painting or photograph instead of a mirror - something pastoral or to do with land.

Stain glass is neat on a boat, and i like it, but not on me boat 4 sure...not a monkey thing to sport
