I am not a liveaboard but I figure that this forum is where the experience is. I am planning to make an attachment to my bimini that would enclose my cockpit for bad weather. I am thinking that I will not have it up much at all, maybe 5-10% of the time. The rest of the time it would be stored below.
Questions: which is better
high percentage of plastic glass for light and visibility or lower percentage
fixed windows or zip out windows
cloth coverings to block sun and be a little warmer for windows or none
Not a very important topic but I would be interested in a few replies from experienced sailors.
Toss in any other ideas or suggestions if you are inclined. This is a DIY job for the winter.
