We just bought a 60’ aluminium sailing boat, 6 years old, and we are in the process of rethink many particulars for adapting the boat to our plans who are to sail even in cold places like Patagonia, and Antarctica.
Your site is wonderful; a lot of passion is filtering in your words.
A big wave destroying the glazing is one of our nightmares and so we found interesting your thumb rule for dimensioning the glazing.
We’ve read of your concerns about laminated glasses, but you don’t talk about double glazing to reduce the condense inside the boat in cold places. May be because with such thicknesses is not an issue?
Thanks a lot,
We looked at double glazing for Wind Horse and concluded that it was not strong enough. Also,the three folks who tried it all had condensation problems between the window panes.
