Do you have the surrounds around the window?

My 268 Islander has a track installed in the surround for curtains.

Velcro could work the best. They have an adhesive backed version you could install on the entire frame. You could have it sewn on the curtain. It would allow repositioning as well.

Sorry for late reply I had the velcro sewn around the curtain and used the adhesive style to attach to window frame
just make sure and clean frame good and it should stay put
On a side note I got tired of curtains and leaking windows so i am having the windows fiberglassed in as we speak

Mine have tracks with snaps around them. I'm in the process of replacing the curtain with new fabric and old mounting. Checkout Sailrite.com for hardware and sewing supplies. Didn't like any fabric I found there. Wife is still mad at me for stealing her new shower curtain to make new curtains!
