I love the way your boats look with the windows tinted!! I have all my cars done at 5% all around and love it, I'm just wondering how dark you guys have gone on the boat?? Any regrets, should have gone darker, or not as dark???

I live in the Washington state not a ton of sunshine but I just love the look of it. I usually sit on top of my seat and look over the windshild when I drive anyway so how dark do you think I should go????

Remember with boats there is no roof or interior to deal with like cars so you can go darker than a car. However, I would not go "limo" tint, especially if you ride/cruise at dusk

Another thing to think about, you will get reflection off of the window when tinted. Some don't mind it, it bugs me though.

Had 30%, switched to 20%, wish I had 5%. I live in Wa. Never had any sight issues w/ my boat but... I also have a dark boat (no glare)

Check my profile for pics.

If you have 5% on all your cars then you I'm sure you know the right answer. :D

I went 5% and haven't given it a second thought. I too look over the windshield and picked the 5% for looks. Only thing i don't like is the walkthru windshield doesn't appear as dark when you have it closed because there is nothing (such as the dash) behind it. Might consider 5% on both sides of the glass :confused: Ive considered it just haven't done it.

FYI, its more expensive than tinting a car. I paid $400.

I got 20% on mine right now if i get it redone next year i might do 5% but even as it is you cant hardly see threw it. I mainly got it for the look and also for a little privacy in the divers helm

OK I'm gonna go with the 5% tint!!

Everytime I see a pic on here with the windows tinted it stands out so much to me.

I gotta get this done, it looks WAY better IMO!!
