It will have to do with the way they are mounted. They can be bullet proof. Sure in 15 or 20 years they would have to be changed but that seems to be a small price to pay for enjoying the scenery.

Anyway I am quite sure that if you say you don't want them they would not have any problem in providing you a hull without openings and save some bucks in the process
