I have a little 22' pocket cruiser
that lives on a river and bobs around with family
and friends. It performs well for what we have her, but suffers from the classic
problem of poor visibility.
I changed the pedestal
and seat to be able to sit higher, and that helped.
I placed a black fabric
on the dash to avoid reflection of the white hull
material on the inside of the windscreen, and that helped a bit too.
However i still get a lot of reflection when I have the sun in front or on the side. The reflection is on the glass that is flat and no amount of cleaning
seems to help. If I get salt water
on the glass it is just impossible to see when the sun is in front.
The other day i was squinting and sticking my head
out the window as usual when I had an aha moment. i remembered the passenger launches when I was a kid all with a sort of visor on steroids over their flat windscreen. Would that be the reason for that ugly accessory?
Would that help me? It is an easy contraption to make, and I don't care much for looks. Here are a couple of the original boats of my youth, all built in the forties and fifties,
