Default Broken Windshield, how to repair?

Hello Everyone,
I hope everyone is well and safe. So my wife got a text message from her brother that the passenger side windshield of our 1700 SR has shattered. Anyone know how I can get this replaced or what my options are here? The boat is awesome otherwise, in great shape, its a 1998 so Im thinking this won't be easy.
Any advice is really appreciated.
Thanks,
-Andrew

You may be correct, this will not be easy to find. I'd try contacting local dealerships...

Did your brother tell you how it happened? Did a rock shatter it while on the trailer?

Try googling Taylor made.
They made the windshields for Maxum if I am not mistaken.

Tempered glass with a custom curve might be tough to get fabricated. TaylorMade was the manufacturer, however they won't have 22 year old stock lying around.

You might get lucky and find a plexi fabricator who can heat and curve plexi.

No idea. It was parked and tarped up good like we've done for many winters. This year we lifted the tarp and it was broken.

I think you should try to contact Taylor Made Systems,
They seem to be able to provide windshield glass even for older models

FYI Taylor Made sent me to Ocean Dynamics for a project I'm working on and they were very helpful on the phone.
