AllThumbs, here's a pic of our boat if that helps:
Contrary to what SD says, if you use a dark-coloured (ie. black) sealant, you don't have to paint anything - the tinted lexan is dark enough that you can't see into it without light behind.
Our windows are around 1/2" smoked lexan covering three cut-outs behind. It's very easy to do - and you can make a companionway storm-board and even sliding hatch from the same stuff.
