I just got my new enclosure installed today. The boat had 10 year old curtains and was missing the entire rear sections. I opted for Ivory Riviera Vinyl. It has a 5 year warranty. I also got the forward center panel done in polycarbonate since the windshield frame is quite low on the older 330’s. You are looking thru that panel a fair amount of the time. 02548A24-594D-4810-8CE9-EF3BFE8BF855.jpegD1BB66FE-B004-46FE-A231-F01B909A5321.jpegC12ED2B1-6796-4D74-8059-F636B2971B22.jpeg

Can you post a pic of that front polycarboate window? I had mine done over the summer and the installer thought about that but talked himself out of it. Looks like you still have 3 sections?

One REALLY nice change, my old side/front panels would have to roll up and be secured with straps/buttons. For the new install, he mounted swivels on the hard top so the panels will have less wear/tear from the straps (and hands touching the clear).

Here you go. The center panel is Polycarbonate.536E9FF1-AF7B-452A-86C6-03B5416350DF.jpegA4D3D060-F8AA-4F47-9EE8-41CB1913FB2F.jpeg

Great look! I can see the fasteners for the fold back but can't tell if the light there is in the way. On my 2003, that's probably the safest window to fold back for fear of it getting scratched....that said, I still don't do it very much with my more flexible window - has to be stinkin hot.

I fabricated that dome light to replace the Grady white plastic halogen red/white dome light with the spreader light switch built into it. I got the Aqua Signal red/white LED dome light and drilled a hole in the trim ring to mount a toggle switch. It looks and works great. Since I took that picture. I’ve rotated the light 120 degrees so the toggle switch hanging down won’t hit the polycarbonate window panel when it’s folded back. It still hits the front of the electronics box though. I doubt I’ll be doing that. Those little corner panels roll up nicely and I’ve got my fan.

Agree. I'd leave in the snapped position.
