Guidance for replacing Boler window seals

We have a 1976 (?) Boler 13' and want to do some work on the windows - jalousie and plexiglass both. I have combed through the forum and also checked youtube. It would be wonderful to have a checklist of materials needed BEFORE we begin as we would like to do this right the first time. Any recommendations?

PS - May also need to replace/repair the crank mechanism on one of the side jalousie windows as currently not working. Will hopefully order new plexiglass for back and front window.

Rhonda; First suggestion is that since you're already close, drive over to Sebringville, and meet Paul Nieumeister at his shop. He is very friendly, and quite willing and able to talk 'Boler'. Although we're almost 500 km away - I really found his help and personal suggestions very useful. AND, he has (or had) some of the original window rubber and lockstrip for your front and rear windows.

Thanks for reaching out

I just spoke with him yesterday about the hinge kits he sells. I'll give him a call so thank you for the suggestion!

Which installation method works best?

Now that we know where to get the materials, I am looking for the most "idiot proof" way to reinstall the back and front windows of the Boler. I have watched the videos posted on youtube by Kevin Johnston (Part 1 at ). However, I also watched one from Steel Rubber products at

windows

I see the question about materials for windows!!!!!I then see the reply to contact someone who is familiar with window repair.. Iam new to this site but located in northern New York in the Adirondack mountain with very little access to anything. So I asked again what will I need for front and rear windows and side windows. Im restoring a 13 ft 1984 boler. I see there is a gasket for front and rear windows ,do I use a gasket {where can I get it} also what about Butyl tape do I use both . Inew to this and really want to do repairs myself.Sorry for my lack of knowledge
