The 500W 5 section welded windshield. Like the 500M the 500W walk-thru also has interlocking frame constriction, however, each section is individually welded for added strength. The 500W has an opening center section (center door) which is appropriate for larger open cockpit boats or to provide a center walk-thru door giving access to the foreword deck. The 5 section welded walk-thru door model comes with braces on both sides of the door to secure and hold the port and starboard front sections firmly in place when the door is open. The door is fitted with two rotary locks to secure it in the closed position, and a rubber tipped bumper which prevents damage to the deck or the door itself when open. The aluminum extrusions utilized in the 500W are heavier than that of the 500M and are fully welded for greater strength and durability.
