Saving Your Isinglass

On most boats the isinglass windows on an enclosure will touch the metal support structure of a hardtop or tower leg. Over time this contact and rubbing against the aluminum or stainless will etch a permanent line in the plastic window of your enclosure.

The simple solution is to put a suction cup on the plastic so the little nub of the suction cup touches against the metal and keeps the isinglass from getting damaged.

Enclosures are pricey and this little tip can help you get a few more years out of your isinglass.
