They may have got a bad batch or got ripped off themselves.
This kept happening to me with eyeglasses. I went to Pearle vision in New Jersey
and I got the works on the glasses. Very expensive. They use polycarbonate lenses.
The glasses started developing cracks. Slowly. About a month after I got them. And over the next few months they became completely crazed. Difficult to see out of. And imagine driving at night with that.
They tried to convince me it was Florida
Sunshine that was ruining them but people in Florida
They gave me a new pair. And they did the exact same thing!
I finally went to a different optometrist and had a new prescription a new glasses made. When they saw the crazed lenses of the old glasses they knew exactly what it was. It was inferior quality polycarbonate.
I got a new pair from the new optometrist and they are fine to this day.
So it’s quite possible that they got a bad or cheap
or shoddy batch of acrylic
for your boat. Or for several of the boats. They buy in bulk.
When it comes to something like this, all the energy you put into fighting it would be best put into just getting new windows. Total waste of time to do all of the fighting. And imagine how long it would take to bring your boat in and not be able to use it while they are servicing the windows. Not worth the battle. You should just get new windows.
