View Full Version : Replace window slide felt

06-10-2014, 09:00 AM
30 year old felt lined rubber slides are just rotten and seriously impede window operation. Surely someone has replaced them and talked about it, but search returns no hits. Anybody know how to do this? Where to find replacement felt? thanksalot

Bump longjohn I hate seeing someone seeking help ignored, but then again you haven't volunteered really any information that would be helpful to helping you.:confused: The make, model, maybe year of your boat could be a start.

I did find some tracking available but there are several similar but different window channels utilized on different boats. Here's an example of one in use: WINDOW CHANNEL (http://store.hamiltonmarine.com/browse.cfm/window-channel-8-dbl-s-s-rigid-31-32w-x-29-64h-132964-/4,8735.html)

Here is a writeup of how they replaced them on a Marinette: HOW TO INSTALL NEW WINDOW TRACKS (http://www.marinetteboat.com/forum/yaf_postst150_Window-track-replacement.aspx) but then who knows maybe yours are similar. :)
