Author Topic:   Console windshield frame
fred3 posted 08-31-2001 05:48 PM ET (US)   Profile for fred3   Send Email to fred3  
I am restoring my 1970 Sakonnet. The console is out of the boat and I would like to remove the windshield so I can properly sand the top of the console and also the mahogany frame of the windshield. I also plan to replace the glass which is scratched.

Any ideas on how to separate the frame from the console top? Also, what kind of glass should be used?

Passing note: Just got my original paperword out. My boat started life as a Currituck and a 1969 catalog shows the list price was $1630. the Sakonnet was $2370.

Thanks for your help. Great forum.

Turn the console upside down. Tehre will be about 6 or 8 screws holding the wooden windshield to the upper part of the console. The screws are bronze I think. I redid my Whaler this past winteer and had to rebuild/ reconstruct my console. The top part has very thin Mahogany so be careful not to sand it too deep. When I go my boat it was a bare hull from the Army COE and I dound a broke upper console adn broken windshield on the WEB down in Carolina. We completely took the pieces I got apart and redid them building new parts as needed to replace missing pieces. Check my website to see the work:
