This Hatteras 55′ Convertible, located in Maryland, was experiencing leaking boat windows and corrosion and pitting on the old aluminum frames. The corrosion was most likely the culprit, but we’ve seen leaking windows in the past that has resulted from a combination of corroding aluminum frames and deteriorating rubber seals. For this Hatteras owner, the choice was made to replace the windows with fiberglass frames instead of repeating the problem with restored or new aluminum frames, that will eventually lead to the same leaky problem.
The customer decided to make a few changes, which we were happy to accommodate. The design of the Aft Salon window was customized with a curve and enlarged. The Hatteras also received all new port lights. The installer, Tony (call for contact information) was extremely satisfied with the windows and the easy installation process. The customwas satisfied with the new windows and the new look. You can see the installation process in the pictures.
