You might try your local auto glass shop.  I put a human through the windshield of my '88 a few years back.  They ordered a piece of tempered glass to fit - had to bend it a little to get it into the frame but, good as new.  Otherwise, good luck...very hard to come by.

Had a similar problem with my 88 Advance.  Hopefully you can find a local shop that can replicate your windshield in tempered glass.  If not, there is a guy in Florida that did a fair job replacing my windshield with tempered glass 1/32" thinner than the original.  I believe the original glass was "curve-tempered".  Bad news is the guy charges $700.

gerryamricanskier sorry to hear about that  :-[  At least it sounds possible to get a very close replacement for your boat.  A lot of us can not even come close to getting a replacement due to the extreme curve in the windshield....

I have one for an 86. I'm not sure if that is the same as the 89 or not. Make me an offer. Located in Northern California.
