Shamu’s New Window

7 / 11

The window beside the Captains seat was broken months ago. Fortunately it was thermal glass and only the outer layer was broken. Long story short, parts of this sort are difficult to get and expensive. The window has been on order for months now. It’s a specialty item and there is no inventory. It finally arrived on June 28 and we were scheduled to be away for a couple of weeks so I had plenty of time to think about how I was going to handle the replacement and worry. As always, multiply the estimated time for a job by a factor of 3 or 5 to determine how long it will really take. Replacement was difficult and time consuming but saved $1500 when compared to the dealer estimate. If it doesn’t leak, it was time and effort well spent.
