I checked the spec on the 795 before I bought it because there were several negative reviews that said it did not cure. two of them found it still soft the day after installation and removed it and went with household silicone. A couple of others reported soft the next day but then after a week said that it did eventually cure. In otherwords they were complaining that it did exactly what it said it would do!Hayden, I have to replace all my fixed frameless ports. I was surprised when you mentioned a 2 week plus curing time. But confirmed it on the product spec sheet. If I may ask, what was the thickness of the of your acrylic and ball park figure for the acrylic Thanks.
We installed and plan to not do anything with the boat for at least a week. We did get rain then night that we installed but the spec states that it is cured by atmospheric moisture and rain will not harm it during cure.
For my C30 it took one sheet of 1/4" x 37" x 32" which I cut into the four lenses from Tap plastics for $123.33 plus shipping. I cut it with my bandsaw and used the old lenses as templates and a combination flush cut bit and 45º bevel bit in my router to get it to shape. I used new bits and got very clean cuts.
