    Oh man.. bad deal. Yes, if it is "bent" it is really pricey. I am not at all suprised by that price if it were a glass shop. I can't help but think SC gets them WAY cheaper than that. Maybe Drew could make a call??? Your only other option is to cut a piece of acrylic just to fill the hole short of happening across one from an individual.

    Default Windshield Shattered

    It happened to my boat I just had my boat insurance cover it. It was like $1500. My part was $200 or $300. Rinkers did my work and I was very pleased.

    Definitely do a claim on your boat insurance. Likely a lower deductable and shouldn't raise your rates. We pulled in right behind you at be thy as well, felt so bad. My buddy said he was finding glass for 3 years after his broke.
    I'd call pcmw (?) And see if they'll ship you the glass. I've done a couple windshields and they are not too bad. May be way cheaper.

    You know... tempered glass is super strong on the face... but the edges can be barely bumped and it will shatter. I am sitting here wondering if the edge was sitting on a screw from original factory install. No way to know though. But I feel that must be the case if this is happening in transit. One good bump.

    Insurance Claim started with boat insurance. $300 deductible but Rinker told me it will take 6 weeks.

    Until then it will look like you have a really clean windshield one one side.

    Or that you are winking

    Another reason to tint the windshield to keep glass from going everywhere is something happens.
