In the saloon of my 1984, 42 SE (DCMY), I have a sliding window that
exploded into tiny pieces.  It scared the hell out of my wife when it
happened.  I had a new piece of glass made and since I am a do-it-
myself kinda guy, I am trying to do the replacement.  I have
purchased a replacement piece of glass with a hole for the handle.
For conformation and reference, I have been looking at a 1979, 28' Uni
that has the same style windows.

There is what I will call an aluminum trim in the shape of a trapezoid
that appears to hold the two pieces of glass in place.  It is obvious
that the replacement will have to come from the outside, and the
sliding piece that is the object of this job is on the inside, behind
(or on the inside of) a fixed piece (also a trapezoid).  Since the
sliding piece being replaced over laps the fixed piece, the fixed
piece will have to be moved out of the way temporarily.

The trim is one and three quarter inches wide and is held on with 30+ self-tapping screws.
I have removed the screws and started working on the 17 feet of 27+-
year-old bedding compound.  I've used heat, a putty knife and a hammer
and so far nothing is moving.  The compound is gray and still soft,
but very sticky (or should I say, firm).

I'm at the point where I am looking for someone that can do this R & R
for me.  I'm not against hiring someone as long as they are competent,
i.e. they know what they are doing.  I am in the San Francisco Bay
or more specifically in the San Joaquin Delta area (Northern

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to proceed or who to
