Matt... After seeing the workmanship on your boat, I bet you could pull it off if you want them to open...

Thanks, Neel! From a practical perspective, I really don't think it's needed. It would mean some additional likely expensive hardware as well. It would be cool, though.

I also want to thank everybody that I met at G12 that complimented my boat. It really made me feel good to get those nice comments from folks that know what these boats are all about.

Matt… I saw this windshield at the Clayton NY show in August. I am thinking of a modified version of this for the PB 22.... I thought you might like to see it and maybe use a modified design also. I think it would look great if a little lower, a little more slant, with side glass as well. I really enjoyed seeing your Geronimo first hand. Happy you got her finished in time... Neel

That's pretty sleek looking Neel. A nice change from the standard cast brackets that a lot of folks end up with. It does look a little fragile though. I wonder how sturdy it is.
