    I have used 3m VHB tape to attach acrylic windows to a boat with very good results. I have a new, old boat with two windshields. They are standard aluminum frame windows. They are old and they leak. I don't have exact dimensions right now but they are approximately 36" X 18". The boat is fiberglass and the mounting surface is flat. Can I mount new glass windshields with vhb tape? I don't want to use plastic glazing for windshields as it rains a lot here and wipers are used a lot.
