Need replacement windshield for 2006 Crestliner Fishhawk

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where to find a replacement windshield for 2006 Crestliner Fishhawk? Valv? Nothing urgent but mine cracked on the bolt hole so it won't be long before it cracks all the way up. It is the tinted plexiglass type.

I know you could get one from crestliner direct in little falls. I bought the whole side console kit from them. You could also order it through a crystal pierz marine.

In the mean time, drill a small hole at the end of the crack to stop it... you'll get by longer that way.

Marine Man, I actually just stumbled across an article on this topic and they also mentioned drilling a 1/16" hole to stop the crack. Cool, thanks.

Yep... just make sure the drill bit diameter is bigger than the crack and you should be in good shape for a long, long time...

I noticed that the rubber washers that came with the windshields were a little flimsy and pushed out when I tightened the screws. I don't think I was overdoing it but I may have been. I am planning to use some gasket making stuff to replace the bad ones. Might help prevent future cracks.

Sutty-

I noticed the same situation with my rubber washers and i am sure i must have overtightened. However the crack only got to about 1" and since have drilled a 1/32" hole to stop the crack. Can't even see the hole since it is so small, hopefully it holds out for awhile.

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
