Cool that you can get an LED "festoon" bulb. I never knew what it was called. I think I'll wait until the one it came with burns out.

Hey Tim, you could put armor plate up front. !! :lol: :lol:

Seriously, I think either safety or tempered will be fine. Unless you take it out in rough seas, I doubt you will ever get any kind of a wave over the bow strong enough to break it. A friend of mine has a 28 foot BlueJacket with tempered glass in front and I have yet to see or hear of any issues with that.

:D I was cleaning out a shed this morning and came accross 4 panels of tempered glass I forgot I had.Coarse they're a little too wide and too short to fit pilothouse.If I had known I had those when I built pilothouse,I would have built different.GRRRRRRRRRRR. :evil:

Chug,

It's looking good. Watching your progress has kept the Bo-jest near the top of the list of my next boat to build.
