    Are you making one, looking to buy one complete or have a custom one made?

    Darn, I misread the title. I thought it was widescreen not windscreen.

    Any of the above. I have it figured how to make one with aluminum angle for a frame for rigidity, but would go for a commercial version if the price was right and it would last.

    If your in the valley, check with Greatland welding. He makes some awesome windscreens for his boats.
    Or if your a do-it-yourself guy, then call CAC plastics in Wasilla. They do excellent work.
    A friend had one made by CAC, it was frameless from the bottom up and had a partial wrap around on the bottom to give it rigigdy but had no aluminum posts to block vision. The bent the plastic on the edges to wrap back towards the operator giving it strength and more protection for the driver. I was impressed at how clean and simple it was.

    Don't recall the make/mod/yr but we did the same thing on an old Smokercraft we used to have.

    Mine is just 3/16" aluminum bent in a brake...simple and very strong. Picture is before making it 4"s shorter. After having it I will never run without again.
