Hi everyone ! its been awhile since I posted anything here.. life sometimes gets in the way and priorities change for awhile .. I haven't done much to my 1957 Lone Star Holiday other then get it sitting on the trailer better .. but I still lurk here and on other boat websites to see whats going on.. as I haven't given up on my boats.. after 3 years of having this boat, I never knew for sure if the windshield was correct.. and on the few 1956-1958 Holidays I've seen on the internet they are all missing their windshields .. well a few days ago I happened to run across a eBay find of a guy that had what he though were a 1950s matched pair of Lone Star Boat flag masts .. I found that to be quite puzzling .. and after looking closer at the brochures on Fiberclassics realized they were the windshield brackets.. looking closer at the dimensions given I realized these are  the ones used only on 1956 - 58 Holidays, 1956 Riviera's and the Cruise Liner Fly Bridge ! I did the buy it now and now have them.. looks like I might have the correct windshield as these Brackets match up perfectly with the shape of the windshield and the original bracket holes.. and here they are sitting next to the windshield ..

bbj for what its worth I think I do have your old boat.......Although I must say... the photos of when you had it ... it was in pretty good shape.  Why didn’t you put a windshield on it?
