The windows in the forward deckshous are now in place thanks to Petter and G A Lindberg ChemTech AB.

I chose silicon becouse it is resistent to UV-light and weather. Butul and other componds may be stronger, but silicon holds 20 kilo in tension at each square centimeter giving a total strenght per window of about 4 tons wich is ample for a boat of about one ton. Also unless I go crazy the the force is unlikely to come from inside the boat.

Below are some pictures click once or twice to enlarge.

Rubber distances are placed to get the silicon acces to everywhere. This is important so that no hard spots get in contact with the tempered glass.

And last picture. Petter can relax after my harsch supervision.

To be continued…
