windshield

I have a Dc 21 and I am trying to find a new windshield or at least an aluminum profile so maybe I could do it myself. Can anybody help please?
I am doing a complete renovation, I have also done a temporary wooden windshield. I will send images of the works later.

I’d like to see images/drawings (if any) of your temporary wooden frame. I’m replacing my corroded aluminium windscreen with wood, some inspiration and ideas of where to start would help me.
Cheers.

Hi Barry
Yes, here you are. Well what I did is I have done two Triangles for the sides two squares well not exactly square as the angles are not 90%. than I added a small wooden piece in the middle. The small wooden piece has slanted sides to get the front angle. I used two Aluminum strips sealed to the boat and fixed the Triangular sides to it. It is not 100% but I had to have something for the Summer season. I will take it off again in winter and do some slight changes

Hi Leonard.
Very many thanks, those pictures have helped enormously to clarify my thoughts on how to do this. My ideas were similar, but maybe I was complicating the task more than I needed.
My aluminium frame is ruined by oxidisation. So I’m replacing it with wood and then building and fitting a quarter or half hard top.

This is my girl so far. You might see it as being a little ‘different’. I might expect a flaming from the traditionalists, but i have sound reasoning for the modifications. She will have port hatches in the cockpit bulkhead, and a full size cabin roof hatch along with mushroom vents over the galley and head compartments.

Thankyou again.
Barry.
