Forward windshield provides clarity without distortion

March 1st, 2009 / By: / MFA Excellence Award Winners

Nautilux Custom Canvas, Red Bank, N.J.

This project, which won an Award of Excellence in the soft enclosures category of the 2009 MFA Awards, featured a newly designed forward windshield for this Main Cat 30, giving the owner just what he was looking for: clarity with no distortion. Even in the cold weather he and his family can go for a comfortable cruise. The windows would sag just before and through the forward corners on the original enclosure. By changing the vertical break on the outboard edge and angling it slightly, Nautilux was able to eliminate the most of the sag. A 1/2-inch negative was taken out of each panel for that specific vertical break. Using all windows increased his visibility.
