Rear window

The plastic rear window has fallen in on one side, in an attempt to fix it I’m using epoxy glue, no idea if it’ll work but worth a try

The cheap lidl/aldi vice grips getting a bit of use

Hopefully that'll be a cheap fix.

would be interested to hear if this does the job.
If it doesn't, maybe one of the local sail makers/marine shops could suggest something?

It was left till now so that the glue can set fully, of course there wasn’t enough glue in the one shot syringe to do the full length but I’ll be happy for now if this much holds.

The zipper closed much easier so can only be better.
Still thinking of changing it for a mohair top though
