    Towards the end of the summer my connex screen started cracking from the corners. By the end of the season it was cracked 3 inches from each corner. I brought it in to the dealer and they are replacing it under the warranty but I wanted to see if anyone else has had that issue. Wondering if I should be worried about it happening again.

    Strange, unless the mounting screws/bolts are near each screen corner. I would guess somebody overtightened the screen in that case.

    That was my thought, just wanted to make sure it wasn't a common thing.

    I know yours is covered under warranty, but do you know the cost of the repair if you had to come out of pocket?

    I asked the dealer about that and he guessed around $50,000 but that included installation.

    Sorry to hear about the screen. Would you know if the heat of the sun weakened it while being on the water? Does anyone know if they sell some kind of cover that can be used to keep it clean and out of direct sun?
