Hey George, Most areas have a glass shop that specializes in on location equipment window replacement. Our local shop will come out, use your old pattern or use the opening as a pattern and cut and install new safety glass or Plexiglas or Lexan, using new rubber they supply. If you have someone local used to working on equipment whether metal working equipment like big milling machines or rolling stock like big loaders and excavators, they are experts at working with sheet metal openings.

Wefco has lots of rubber extrusion shapes. You could try them for the window moulding

I have often wondered about the (top-cabinmounted) windshield.
Was it an option? I doubt it but it could be.
Did the early ones have it or was it later? I think later- judging by the illustrated advertising images. Seems like about half the pics you see online have 'em :unsure:
How many owners eventually removed them and are there any still sitting out behind the tractor shed in the texas sun carefully perched on blocks and dutifully covered up by loving owners?

Luckily my boat has the TWS albeit w/ the side (plexi)glass triangle windows out (for the time being anyway). They were all frosted up and one was cracked. I got the good one out in one piece for a pattern and the rubber channel came off altogether as well. Where can you get that stuff?

What is the single side cabinwindow version called? Is the tws the same? Interesting the CL boat w/ twin EVE 35's is a direct transom mount. BTW last weekend on the way to Shelton I rounded up two merc long shaft extention kits to convert my 300's to LS. This will require another new transom :angry: but will finally have the correct motor set-up

If you mean the "fly windshield" that mounts on top of the cabin I think you will either have to buy a used one (good luck) or build your own. Building one won't be that difficult. I can take photos and dimensions from mine if you need them. The hard part will be finding the correct roll out windows.

Start a new thread for your new boat when you get home. Post your story and lots of photos. There are more Lone Star Cruisemaster owners on this site than on the Lone Star Yahoo group site.

Good luck

I'm on the road now. I will get some more pictures. Any idea where I could locate a windshield for it?

Where do I find reasonably priced rivets and bucking tools?


My friend Ron (westwind999) placed a bulk order for rivets for my local motor club. I'd send him a PM. They were quite inexpensive. I borrow his gun when I need to replace rivets. Do you have anymore photos? I'd love to see some of the trailer, too.

Paint already stripped from top and bow. They were on the home stretch on sides but I think they ran out if gas. Came with a Merc 800.
