Just curious if you were planning on replacing yours, and if there is enough room in the bedding area to do that, or if you'd have to modify the area to keep some spacing between it and the inner and outer frame?
If using acrylic
I'd recommend thicker, no doubt. The advantage you've got there, is uv and scratch resistance over Lexan
. Would still love to see some stretched acrylic
on a boat
, If your acrylic breaks, it will break like plate glass(in large shards). And the edges are very important as it's the weak spot.
And as a quick note, standard acrylic is uv proof, but about 1/8th the strength of polycarb(lexan). Lexan
(even tinted) will yellow over time. I've a long drawn out post on it somewhere that I tried to keep short, but failed so i'll not repeat it, just a link to it instead http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...07&postcount=9
