    Default Boat Salvage yards?

    I'm trying to find a windshield for my old boat, the trouble is that the fit is almost year specific. Does anybody know of any boat salvage yards in the NJ, DE, MD, PA areas?

    Lots of stuff at the local boatyards but we need more info. So we can keep a collective eye out for you.

    Due to townships, lawsuites and EPA these types of yards are getting hard to find. We ended this when a customer sued us for falling out of a junk boat while he was looking for parts.

    Sorry for not including the boat information. The windshield needs to fit a 1988 Bayliner Ciera 2455 Bridge. Due to the step down at the corner of the front and side windows I *think* that only an '87 or an '89 are the only years that will interchange.

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes, I would like his number. I'm thinking this might be a drawn out process. Thankfully, the PO (my little brother) had clear curtains installed all around the helm so I can see out the front in the rain or spray...kind of.
