I have alot more glass ( see avitar) and it only cost about $300 for professional installation. I don't have storm shutters. Bill Dixon, who designed my boat, says they are needed because of the strength of the glasing.
If your windows are acrylic ( or lexan)BTW this wont work for too long. THe plastic will expand and contract at a different rate than the window, eventually one of them will not be inline with the other.....
at least thats what the theory is
