    This new format sucks just like fucktards proposed wall. It doesn’t work.

    Thank you all for the information. I used some sandpaper and got it a little cleaner, but not as perfect as some of the pictures above. I reinstalled the window yesterday using Dow 295 and am happy with the outcome. I was unable to use the VHD tape because of the inside lip the window sits on is too proud and causes a ridge that is higher than the depression for the 295. I masked all around the outside and on the window itself, then used a tongue depressor to clean the visible seams. So far so good. Next time I have to do this I'll purchase Debond - any specific name for that?

    So I spent a couple of hours getting the goop off. Messy but not difficult. (The water gods did manage to get a couple of my tools) It's interesting how the inner lining is tabbed to the outer skin of the boat. Also there is a lip all around the inner lining of the window. Now waiting on the tape and goop to be delivered.

    Window popped out very easily. Does not look like it had any tape holding it just black goop. Now my job is to clean off the goop. More info to foloow

    OK - I read most of the stream above and watched the video. So, my port-light (non framed, non opening) in the head of my J105 has started leaking at the seal. I think due to heavy feet during a round up. The Lexan is not broken. What I am planning on doing is taking the port-light out and then resealing the whole thing. Question 1. Recommendations on removing the old window. Question 2. Does a 105 window have enough of a lip to use VHB or do I just go with Dow 795? Question 3. Has anyone done this on a 105? Thanks

    We trim our 105 directly to the cabin top winches from the jib fairlead. We only use the turning blocks for the spinnaker sheets. I keep trying to talk my crew into cross sheeting on the cabin top winches but they rebell.
