What kind of boat is this?

My instinctive reply is to keep the hard windshield that you have, particularly if it's original equipment to the boat. People pay a lot of money for that kind of arrangement, and future owners might expect this feature if it's O.E.M.

There are plenty of examples of boats that have a hard windshield that transitions to a soft dodger. Malo, Hallberg Rassy, Amel, even some Beneteaus come immediately to mind (LINK). So you ought to be able to study some of those models and see how it's done. If your canvas guy can't figure it out, ask around and find someone who's seen these jobs before and knows how to handle it.
