Replacing the saloon windows on a Lagoon 42 TPI

I thought I'd jump on here and post some window information. Groovy huh? ;-)

I am talking about Lucey Blue's saloon windows:

They don't look too bad from here...but this is what they look like from inside:

...even outside they looked pretty grim in places:

We're not sure exactly how old they are or if they've ever been replaced. If they have been replaced, we don't know about they could be 18 years old.

While we were up in Sydney in January we contacted John from John's Boat Hatches and Windows and got a quote to replace all of the saloon windows and hatches. We then decided to go ahead with this rather significant piece of work.

First, the windows got taken out.....I managed to get a few shots of Lucey Blue from inside and out...with her attractive plastic temporary windows:

I am going to leave it at that for now. I'll be back later with some installation shots!

Have a great day.
