If anyone on the Ohio river Markland pool fleet area wants to order we could put one order in and save on shipping to one location. Now that we can get this I will not tool it up and run it until we can no longer get it from Tom. let me know Jeff.Monday@gmail.com

I have the source and tooling price to do either plastic or aluminum we are looking at doing a 37 ft house boat now. If anyone has the need or a suggestion of what the best material would be I would be happy to order a run of either.

Just talked with Tom Althouse who is running "Marinette Yachts" for his son John Althouse who is recovering from a stroke. 8-)
He has the window track and slider material available for our Marinette Yachts. :D
Call him at:

I spoke with John Sima (Owner of Sima Marine) recently at the Cleveland Boat Show. He indicated that he sold the Marina about 2 years ago. It is now Chagrin Marine LLC at the same location. He indicated that they (Chagrin Marine) do have a source (with tooling) for the window tracks but that the minimum order is fairly high in terms of linear feet of the track. I will reach out to them in a couple of days and see if they have any in stock and the possibility of future orders.

Questions about installation of the new glide material into the original style tracks...
1. Can the install be accomplished w/o removing the existing tracks?
2. If so, what would be the recommended procedure?

Thx,
Bill

Thanks TinChips: :)

If you have the aluminum track, you do need to "poly glide" (plastic stripping). This helps the windows slide better. I took over the selling of the plastic stripping from Carl P (who was selling it on eBay) as he didn't want to do it any more. You can find it on:
https://marinetteparts.com/

As a side note, I have a length of Plastic Window Track and was thinking about getting a batch made. Modern plastic manufacturing would put UV inhibitors in the plastic so I don't think the UV damage is as much an issue as in the past. Anyone interested in the Plastic, please let me know.

I’d be interested in the plastic tracks if the aluminum ones are nowhere to be found. I’m not sure if Mr. Althouse is still selling them. Most of those posts are from 2016 or earlier.
