I think you're better off with the hard windshield. I don't see a problem with connecting the hard dodger to the existing windshield, provided the windshield framing is strong enough to take that kind of load. A track can often be bent and attached around the top edge of the windshield and used to connect the existing windshield to the new dodger. The connecting panels would be canvas and/or vinyl, but the rest of the dodger could be rigid.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
