When you were quoted for the window was that a new replacement or a new replacement that was going to be custom made?
You will see an additional offer, this is only if you wish to use it otherwise you can ignore it, it will give you direct access to email me directly with any future questions you may have. This is a separate offer from this question and it's value and again is only if you wish to choose that offer.
Correct, there will be screws and sealant to remove, and then you will have spacer shims, these can be of just about anything from wood to electrical cord to composites, if it is a slider then once you remove the shims you can slide the track and replace. Note, depending on which salon window could be why they quoted $5k, this glass is very expensive then again you have to also consider the value of your vessel +/- a neighborhood of somewhere around $200k so when you consider only $5k for replacement it is relative to the vessel. The glass alone may be $2-$3k+ or higher. Tempered glass is very expensive and then if there are any curves to the glass it jumps in price quickly as well.
These grand banks are beautiful vessels and repairs on them just like any older expensive quality vessel can become expensive as I am sure you are aware already.
There is no service manual that is going to show this repair that I know of.
