    Default Window frames not secure.

    Can anyone recommend a good marine window repair guy or gal? My frames aren't tight to the cab and the screws can't be tightened any further. It's the frame around my sliding Windows. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1446827563.373650.jpg

    Not too sure why they would be loose, but I'm betting Brian with BK Marine Services in Wasilla would be able to get you fixed up. Give him a call at 232-6399.

    I dont think they were ever the right size. I just purchased the boat this year used. I think the frames were made for a thicker gauge cab material. I don't see any mastic either. didn't find much on installing boat windows of this kind on youtube or the web.

    most of the window repair is on sailboats. I have replaces a couple on my boat but they were already broken and I replaced the glass. Its not hard to do and I would suggest a marine sealant as well.

    There are probably a few things you can do yourself. If the frames aren't leaking and the screws are bottoming out on the frames as it seems, try removing a couple of screws and grind off enough of the tips to see if they will snug the frame up tight. If so, you've got a simple project. If you can't get them to snug up, or the frame is leaking, then the frame needs to be removed and proper elastomer thick enough to allow the screws to snug up is your next option but a lot more work and maybe one you need to farm out. Good luck!

    Yep shorter screws and also could get butyl tape (comes in different thickness' can order from local glass shops or get directly from C.R. Laurence online) to bulk up the install.

    Sweet. I'll start the project when I get home. Shortening the screws may also help with the slap I have in my sliding window. If not I will need thicker whisker strips I would guess. Burn that bridge when I get there.

    Before shortening the screws you could take a small wire or a toothpick and measure how deep the window is to see if the screws are too long.
