      Research would seam to indicate that polycarbonate aka Lexan is 2-6
      times as strong as plywood.

      So, if I use 1/4" thickness polycarbonate with the 1/2" ply
      pilothouse on the CLC, I should have a nice strong structure without
      having to go to extraordinary lengths to to strengthen the ply
      structure to hold non loadbearing windows.

      One question answered.

      Now, can I buy clear polycarbonate and use the auto window tinting
      film on it before assembly, to get exactly the shade of tint I want
      on the windows?

      I'm pretty sure it's a water based glue they use.
