Denise, there's all kinds of Lexan (brand of polycarbonate) and similar materials. The supplier can tell you exactly which grade that is, and then the maker will have specs on their web site. Any polycarbonate will be better than most of what was used on "stock" boats, whether you want to go beyond what they have is another question entirely. There are some grades of polycarbonate that are specially scratch-resistant, UV-resistant, or both. Usually--that would mean ordering in whole 4'x8' sheets though, and they can get pricey.
