Shutters

I have often thought shutters that can be slid in place over the windows in preparation for heavy weather would be a great addition. Installing two tracks on either side of the window and then probably a 3/4 inch thick piece of plywood cut to fit inside the tracks so the slide in and cover the window completely. I would think this would increase the strength of window immensely. You could even install thick lexan in the center of the shutters to allow some light into the cabin still.
