Keep in mind that a Great Alaskan weighs about half what that boat weighs, which means lots of stuff up high could create windage issues.  But the stylish extended roof, windshield, etc is up to you ... no problem otherwise.  If you're considering a flying bridge, just keep the weight light and try to come up with a structure that lets the wind through.  A 'sunny day' flying bridge made from aluminum framing would be fine.  Even a step behind the house that lets you see over the house (with roof-top steering) would work well.  It's *your* boat!

That's the fun part!  Where there's a will, there's a way, and most things are possible or at least possible in degrees.  The planning and designing phase of producing your dream boat is one of the funnest phases :D
