Mine have side panels that can be rolled up on the shady side and down on the sunny side. I can use just one, two, or all three panels. The entire awning takes one person a little over thirty min to install or take down. Going forward requires that you squeeze around the dodger but I can walk on the cabin tops with just a little stoop. Be sure to incorporate a zipper at the exit points on either side of the cockpit.
In the cockpit there is plenty of room to stand as the dodger canvas is stowed.
Even if I'm only going to be somewhere a short time I often put up the awning over the cockpit (from main to mizzen...that alone makes a big difference.
I'll try to post a pic or two.

Hi don't know your location in the Caibb. There is a very good canvas shop in Old English Harbor that does very good work. You may find one in Trinidad. As others have written find a craftsman that has done them before. You've got 3 or 4 halyards to use to support it. Best is to stay above the boom so you can walk below the cover.
