  • Sea Ark WindShield build

    Finally got to making the windshield on the bow
    Bow build link

    Basically two 24" x 24" outside sections & the center section is the walk thru
    Aluminum angle at Greatland & the plastic (opti-glass), screws & rivets at Lowes
    $65 for one 2' x 4' .220 thick plexiglass at Lowes. (most expensive part)
    I had an old piece, big enough for the center walk thru windshield.
    Stainless piano hinge was $21.
    About $125 in parts.

    Couple pics closer to done
    Still need to cut/install a triangle piece of plastic for the wings.
    But it will keep the wind & rain off in the front & my neighbor says it
    will give me some front down force & be more streamline & faster .

    Bow & windshield I'm guessing is about 100 lbs.
    I weighed the bow cover when I pulled it off to paint it. 84 lbs
    Windshield can't be much over 15 lbs.
