We are circumnavigating aboard Voyager so we live under our hard top. It's the best mod we've made to Voyager. I can't think of anything I would do differently. It could stand to be a couple of inches higher, but then I'm afraid it would look too boxy.
What core material are you planning on using? I used plywood but it got to be way too heavy & I had to remove alot of material to lighten it up. Consider foam. it's easy to shape & light weight. Make-up for the lack of strength with several layers of fiberglass.
Are you planning on building a combing on the cabin-top to attach the hard top? I did & I could post pictures if you want to see. I installed real tempered glass windows & I'm glad I did. Look around, there are plenty of custom marine glass window manufacturers who can make any size/shape. At the same time I made my hard top I also replaced all my stancions & rail. I used this opportunity to integrate the aft rail into the support structure for the hard top. Again, I can post pics if you want.
If I can help any more you can e-mail me thru this web site.
