can you do 3 equal in size at the base of the window. Giving the foward triangled window a larger than what is there now.:D

Alot of times there are 3 windows because there is to much bend to the side of the house. You can't bend glass. For what it's worth I like the second pic.

That looks nice to me. It would cost more money to do though. That is a really nice looking hull too. The sheer is just right.

Elmar. MANY thanks for this contribution to my question. As tuna stated, there is a slight curve to the house, but I know of a few of these with the 2 window set-up, which makes me think I can go with either lay out. I think the 3 windows properly proportioned would be the most traditional, like the 2nd pic. Got my wheels turning now.Thanks again for presenting these options, really neat to see it with different looks. Rick

Just curious... but the window option with the largest one, worries me a little bit. I've seen some of them pop out when people go to "land" against them when they are that large. Seen it happen on a JC31 before. Anyone else think that could be a problem? Wondering too if there would be a small effect on the flexibility of the top with that tower on one big seemed window like that, again peeling potatoes here just thinking.

That is why I like this forum, everyone seems to posting and benefiting from it all. I like the teal on it too.

Two Fins has a break in the middle. The older window on the original H&H 40 had a mullion in the middle, turns out that was a pain in the ass when things started to leak after 10+ years. I was told that they do not like doing windows that big anymore but doubt that is true because look at the Viking's and everything else.

I do also think on the larger convertibles though, they support the windows from frames on the inside in a spot or two and the glass is merely a panel laid on the outside and not a typical frame that we find in our downeasters.

I am thinking about pulling my windows this winter and checking out the decoring/sealant job and rebedding, I dont projects!

I appreciate everyones input. this really helps a lot. It's going to be either Elmars option 5 with both windows being sliders,with the angle of the back window following the slight angle of the back of the house, or the revised 3 fixed window set-up that he last posted. I've been looking at so many boats trying to figure how thier configuations would work on mine & this is a perfect way to decide. El mar, I owe you a couple cold ones.

Don't know if this helps any but here's my 29 H&H. I really like the big back window but it would be nice if one of the side windows were a slider or better yet the back if the back was a slider for when i do my split house addition.

Here's a good looking setup.

Yeah, that's about as pretty as it gets....very nice & more than likely what I'm doing. Few more weeks of blackfishing & I'll be getting started
