Brian,
I like that support, I am going to use that.  Off to the shop going to get windshield panels and roof mockup done.

I been thinking (haha) I plan on using 1/2" for the windshield panels rather than 1/4" with 1/4" doubler, might be easier for me.

I used 1/2 inch for mine. Worked great!

Started building Paula J the 2nd Week of June 2015, finished her the second week of July 2016.

Cannon,

Do you mean 1/2" plywood on the deck or the pulpit is made out of 1/2" ?

I thought you had some kind of hardwood on top for pulpit, I like the look and if mine does not seem strong enough I will add something on top.

I did not get done what I wanted to, I have windshield skins mocked up and supports ready for the roof templates to mark the windshield skins but ran out of gas.

Cannon,

Just re-read your post, I get it, you were referring to the windshield panel.
