It has sliders as well The "F" channels (they are called that by some suppliers) I don't think do anything to keep water from getting into the interior, they just separate the glass. Mine didn't even run end to end completely, top or bott...

Re: Tricabin Cockpit U-Shaped Seating Reno

Barrie, after the hatch replacement you did with hydraulic assist, I don't think you need to make any excuses for your boat! LOL thanks!

Re: 10 meter international swim platform

Instead of replacing all the area that was wood, could you make an aluminum tube frame to put in the void. Glue it, bolt it or something.
It would be lighter!
