How to Clean and Protect plastic windows on Bayliner Trophy


James French asked:

I have a Bayliner Trophy with a full top. It has plastic windows not Plexiglas. Will Clear View clean and protect this plastic material?


For your convenience, I’ve highlighted the hyperlinks. Click on the hyperlink to get more information about the selected product.

I assume you are talking about a camper top not a hardtop, and you are referring to the flexible clear vinyl side curtains, also called Isinglass, plus a clear vinyl window in the back.

The Clear View Kit is excellent for cleaning, restoring and protecting this type of marine plastic. Use the No. 1 cleaner / restorer to clean the windows and remove traces of white or yellow fogging and light scratches. Next protect the windows with No. 2, UV protector. Re-apply the protector every 4 to 6 weeks to keep your windows supple and clear. Regular cleaning should only be done with running water as from a garden hose and never wiped dry but only patted dry with a soft cotton cloth or preferably a Synthetic Boat Chamois which will absorb water without rubbing and scratching. Regular application of the protector will increase the life of your windows 2 to 4 times.

Thanks for your question,
