i had 2 sets made for my old C&C 30: a teak one and one made of smoked plexi. That being said, I would explore the use of a material called starboard. Its basically maintenance free. The problem I found with the smoked plexi was that even though it was dark it made the inside of the boat feel like a greenhouse. On either wood or starboard you can install a vent (even a solar powered one) if desired. Plexi is a little harder to drill holes into without cracking. Good luck
