I would agree that rolling up unclean eisenglass or acetate windscreens is damaging, but if you rinse them and dry them and don't wipe them down with particulates not rinsed from the surface, you will do well. Also, be sure to cover any stainless with felt, hose of sunbrella sleeves if they are in contact with the clear plastic windscreen. The hot metal will burn and discolor the windscreen. 210 plastic cleaner/polish is a product that also greatly increases the lifespan of our plastic. If you're living on board as we do south of 30 degrees latitude, I would agree with the plan to be able to fully ventilate the cockpit. I agree with Sailingdog's suggestion of not removing or rolling the corner panels. take care and joy, Aythya crew
