Hi All, hope you all had a great Christmas.

I have removed the front window of my Seamaster 8metre and thought I'd share with you the process.

The fact is that this is a relatively easy job and anyone that can operate a screwdriver will be able to do it.

First remove all the external screws from the frame.

Score around the frame with a stanley knife or other sharp blade.

Gently pull the whole frame from the boat, gently prising with a screwdriver if necessary. A second person to steady the window is a help in case the thing comes out too quickly.

Stand the window frame on the floor and remove the 8 screws from the top of the frame. These can be a pain if they're rusted in place but WD40 helps, be careful with these as they make a bid for freedom and are extremely small and difficult to find if they drop.

Then slide the glass to the middle of the frame and lift out.

Photographs will shortly be added to seamaster8m.blogspot.co.uk

Regards
Pete
