I definitely like the folding to one side idea better then popular - halve on each side
However I'm sill wondering about the "rain proofing"
I was contemplating use of some gasket or overlap to keep the splash or rain water on the outside.
Is it something I need to worry about  ?

These doors were made for C30 boats.
We did some unrealistic testing by squirting water from a hose directly at the doors and there was no leaking anywhere.
There is indeed a piano hinge in the middle.
The "pocket" that holds the acrylic in place has weep holes in the bottom.

womble,

Nice work, I do like the one piece concept for storage. And it's pretty too!
