The plan is to install a power actuated arm on the deck to operate the center windshield.
On the Ship Shape TV and Taco Marine Project Boat, we are replacing the old windshield utilizing the latest technology. Push a button for the power activated arm, and the front lower section opens or closes to get that breeze-in-your-face cooling effect.
Check your windshield: Look for dry, cracked seals and caulking that may cause the windshield to vibrate, or even worse – leak.

Touch-up welding of pits and holes is part of refurbishing a windshield frame.
Repair or replace? You may not need to completely replace your windshield and frame, just get it refurbished and possibly add new glass – see how in the video below.
Silicon sealant is used in the frame joints, and waterproof foam sealant is used between the frame and the fiberglass deck of the boat.
