Hull Windows

I just read in the Swedish Cruising Association newspaper that a hull window just popped out, fortunately on teh windward side when beating, and the boat took on about 800 gallons of water before they realised this.

The boat in question was a 9 year old Hanse 430 and the owners comment was that he should have re-glued the windows. The window in question was facing the sun when moored in her home marina. But this was in Scandinavia, there is not much sun to speak of. Hanse obviously thought the same. windows should have been re-glued.

What would that mean for the tropics, re-glue your windows every 5th year? Who is doing this?

Here is a link to the story, unfortunately in Swedish:
