Rozboon - that may be a very rainy day project. Prob just requires removing the top frame. Hmm. Maybe.
To answer your Q
I laid the original on the new sheet of perspex. The bit across the mid screen is relatively flat - easy. You may notice on one pic the original has a line of tape - holding the two halves together. Taped it both sides before removing from frame.
When I had transferred the front piece profile I rolled it along one curve - partly. And there was some flex in the sheet below - so a combo of rolling the original on the curve and pulling the sheet up to meet it part way. The template profile turned out perfect to the mm - it has to fit inside the corner piece frames.
I did do center marks (top and bottom) on the frames and original screen before removing - then transferred the screen center marks to the perspex profile template. Used those as locating points every time the pieces were moved.
Regards

Great stuff. How did you transfer the curved original to the template? Tape a big big sheet of paper to it and trace the outline or something?

EDIT: Be worthwhile re-making the little corner pieces from your offcuts to complete the refreshed look?

OK - will do.
Next time would try a slightly different approach. But took about 4-5 hrs all up.

Well done ... looks better than the original.

Maybe they anticipated the covid lead demand for their base product ... namely toilet paper, therefore would make sense to concentrate on
the profit to be generated from the hungry hordes hell bent on stockpiling as much as they can get their hands on each time we go into shutdown.

Thanks Viscount - will check. Surfed a few U Tube vids.
I have done one smallish curved screen before on a center console boat. This will be a bit more of a challenge in precision.

Oh - I will try and stay with perspex - it has a curve in it. Glass wont do.
I will just need to remember to take less green water over the front.It is not a submarine after all.

Their website is down so suspect they are no longer trading.
They were still operating 2014...

Wish you luck

Yip, you used to be able to see Fyran boats lining the inside of the fenceline with Te Irirangi Dr as you drove past.
It seems like it wasn't that long ago that I saw boats, so maybe the company carried on for a while after the original owners took it back over in 2015.

But the site is now Advantage Cars Botany.

I thought they were modelled/copied off Parkercraft which were one of the few first Ali boats sold to public in NZ in the 70's.

As production got better I believe the fyrans were a machine pressed into a mould to produce the boat, which predominantly was riveted. So they were never sheet gauge ali, but I dare say some of the bigger models were...

Anyway, Al do you need an expensive glass unit or would a perspex equivalent suffice?

Real blokes look for fishy sign over the windscreen anyway!LOL
