Comming up on the 45 hr i was out on Lk St Clair in our Mastercraft X-2, came into some contact with 4-5 foot waves and noticed that the center swinging windshield had actually made its way past the fixed edge of the driverside window wedging into the fiberglass and cracking it. Got the swinging part unstuck and rested it on the fixed part of the driverside window, looking down the seem it apears theres less than a quarter inch of overlap at the top and maybee inch and a half at the bottom. Has this happened to anyone else? is it normal for the windshield to flex and seperate this much? can Mastercraft remount my windshield under warrenty?? thanx for any help.

It is fairly common on any boat with a walkthrough windshield. Boats flex ALOT while running in chop. The same thing happened to me in my parents Glastron last year, no idea whether MC will fix it or not but it can happen at any time.

My x2 came out of the factory with the windshield caving in in the middle. I don't know how else to describe it other than if you stand behind the boat or in the back of the boat and look directly at the windshield, it caves in towards the center. It is extremely noticeable. The entire windshield needs to come out and be realigned. The walkthrough window does not shut properly unless you pull it pretty hard. This was not caused by hitting wakes or rollers, it was something we noticed before we took it home and something we cannot believe Mastercraft didn't catch before it left the factory. My dealer is going to fix it under warranty.

Just got back from the dealer, they say its normal for any open bow to flex and allow this to happen. 100 bucks for remount, waiting for quote on gelcoat repair.

Vic you are going to live with that answer? You have a brand new boat that cost probably 40 or 50 thousand

It is not normal for a boat to flex.
