As some of you know, I’m building H. Bryan’s shantyboat, much like the one featured in the recent issue of Wooden Boat. I’ve been considering my cabin windows. I’ve been reading about how people in the Bahamas used to have only Bahama style shutters (no glass) on their homes. I think these would look really nice on my shanty boat with the clapboard siding of the cabin. However, where I am can be buggy in the summer and get pretty cool in the winter. I’m thinking the shutter idea would work well in combo with a simple sliding screen and lexan insert in the window jamb. Thus, when the weather is warm, use the shutters with the screen inserts and when cold, use the lexan insert.
Any thoughts on why this is a terrible or good idea?
