Shattered Windshield (middle)

17 posts in this topic

My boat windshield shattered tonight. I was tightening the screws on the plastic latches that hold that swinging middle windshield tight against the fixed part- but I guess I tightened it a bit too much. Can anyone recommend a good place I could get this repaired in the Metro? How much should I expect to $ ? Thanks...

Valv- The inside measurements (inside the frame) are "25 X 25"... If it helps, it is a Crestliner 1750 Sportfish. Let me know if you have something that could replace it. Thanks a lot! 8-Ball.

I don't think Valv checks here every day. I believe he has a new job that takes him traveling. So, hang in there, I guess.

Thanks for update Dave. I called Crystal Pierz re: the middle windshield and they want $460.00 to replace it. That's not happening... Called a local glass co. and they gave me an estimate of $120.00. If I don't hear from Valv in a week or two I will go w/option #2.

8 ball - I had the very same thing happen to me and went to Rapid to check prices, about the same as you. Then they sent me to North Metro glass which is right next to them. They had me back in business in about 3 days for a 1/4 the price. Good guys there, small company.
