I dont see why you couldnt just put on hinges and hang a door made of marine-grade plywood as a quick fix. It doesn't have to look the best, just functional. Obviously the curtain wasn't offering any structural support anyway, so you wouldn't have to worry too much about the door carrying load or anything. Just fashion a door, stain it so it matches (maybe a coat of poly and/or epoxy if you're paranoid of water delaminating the ply), maybe put some handles on it, maybe a latch, and get back to sailing!
