I'm planning on Strataglass for my dodger, but am considering something lighter for side curtains, infrequently used and mostly stored in Florida.  Rolling, how well it stores and resistance to scratching are all considerations.  Has to be sewn with my LSZ-1.  Thoughts and recommendations?

You could use "roll" good plastipane. The .020 weight will roll nicely and store very well but its optical clarity is not too good. If you go to outdoor boat shows with tents, the side walls are often made from this glass.

I recommend using .030 Crystal Clear which is a good compromise. Call me if you need more than four sheets and I will get you a great price. Each sheet is about 109" by 53". This stuff is made by the same company that produces the popular Strataglass but does not have the extra scratch resistant coating.

Thanks, Matt Grant
