hi zeehag, your message to my profile didn't upload anything. but i had seen your photos earlier and thought to comment. just that we got to talking with some sailor folks and then went to dinner. so now can't see anything. the wifi at marina kinda slow as lots of kids abusing internet priveleges.

anyway, what i saw earlier today was great. i forgot the cable to download mine to my picasa web albums etc. so i'll have to wait until new orleans. we're headed over to ingram bay tomorrow after touring perdido bay. spend the night there and then head over to the mississippi islands and back to lake pontchartrain. too bad we never were able to hook up again. ya'll have a great trip. keep catching them fish...was that easy, and what about cleaning and cooking them? glad you and phil are getting along with bubba. great. say hi. i've got a feeling i'll be seeing you again. gina
met gina and mike again today and got pix of them-nice folks and sweet boat---my internets are slow as snail snot today so i have to wait to do pix until tomorrow or another place....still thunderboomers and rainfall---we are in a different little cove bay and will go to pensacola far as i know at this time---jello is a soft medium for planning it....

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
