Boat windshields (or windscreens) are an integral feature of almost every vessel. Acrylic and Polycarbonate are two popular options for this application. Polycarbonate offers superior toughness to acrylic with slightly less optical clarity. Compared to polycarbonate, acrylic is less vulnerable to UV light, resists scratches better, and is easier to seal. It is also less expensive.
