Trying to avoid wrapping them if I can. I have blanket for turbine side, but from our dyno data, the air exiting that compressor is 500F. While under power the turbo should be moving enough air from that area, and there is vents front of hatch.

So my biggest concern is heat soak when slowing down. If I switch to real glass panels, that becomes less of an issue.

My job(s) always seems to have me making snap judgments. "Need that information right now", "how do we take care of..." kind of stuff so after a while I got good at it. As long as it is something I can think with and have at least some experience in. Seems everywhere I go people are asking me questions.

I always thought, make yourself valuable and figure out how to do something no one else in the company can do and you are less likely to be laid off. This was one of them

I was thinking that you wanted to cover the back walls with the insulation. Are you thinking free standing insulation or securing it to something? Or are you thinking actual glass like window or safety glass, etc?

Gonna vent the rear of hatch under wing, and probably stick a couple 6" fans up there also. But I like the idea of adding additional insulation to the fiberglass also.

What kind of temps are you thinking this glass is going to see?

Not sure what you are all about for cosmetics but some stick on heat reflecting insulation would do the trick Iím sure. A few runs and then a couple spot shots with the temp gun will tell you where you need it. It does work quite well.

Yeah some good foil backed insulation would help keep the paint happy on top side. Far as the glass area, I'm guessing it will see +200F for short periods. The vents in front should keep things cool while moving. Just no way to tell until it's actually on the water.

I think he is more interested in the hatch. Originally it was supposed to be acrilic/plexiglass but with the turbo being close he was worried about the temps. I missread and thought it was the fiberglass boat he was trying to protect

Fot the hatch, I think he is going to have to use some tempered glass and have it water jet to shape. Just make sure it is not laminated as the jet will blast between the layers and destroy it

Only when you Pierce into laminated glass. If you pre-drill a hole for inner shape's or start the cut from outside the piece and cut into it, you won't have that issue.
