Bob, I have a hard dodger on my boat (Divinycell/fiberglass construction), though perhaps not as elegant as yours. I have a forward opening hatch on top between the solar panels and an opening hatch in the windscreen. I can tell you that the opening hatch in the windscreen lets in plenty of air and keeps everything cool. It's worth installing.
