Cal25 doghouse

I''m setting up my Cal25 for a Gulf crossing(galveston to Placencia) and can''t decide whether to rebuild a "doghouse" with ports,or a simple sliding system to replace the miserable engineering abortion of a "pop-top". If I uglify the boat w\a doghouse,it could then be made even more ugly by extending same with hard top bimini.Otherwise flat-top and standard shade option.Another factor is the original rig has boom tackle at transom,making for a short bimini indeed....any thoughts on this?

Cruising World did an article on a guy who redid the cabin and, I beleive, the cabin top, on a Cal 25 and then proceeded to circumnavigate with his wife and two kids. I''m sure they could tell you more as they did give him thier sailor of the year award at some point and time.
