My boat is practically brand new with only 13hrs on her. Today as well as couple other days I've notice what appears to sound like the windshield and/or frame makes a loud pop (sounds like glass on metal contact) when running through big chop (whitecaps). Anyone else experience this?

Well, I guess then it may be "normal" in boats with walk through windshields due to some flex in the frame/hull in rough water or double up type rollers.
