   Yes, that would be a good way to bring more light down below for sure. Given our plans for Sueno,  I am currently more concerned however with the integrity/strength of the slider and was thinking of a painted high strength composite material in the event that I replace it.  I realize that the companionway on the Amel is quite protected but it is still a potentially very large hole low in the cockpit.  

    Perhaps a removable upper panel for the slider could be fabricated if one wanted more light down below but could be removed and the slider raised fully when required.

You might consider replacing it with a lightly tinted plexiglass.  It was a tremendous improvement bringing light down below. If interested, send me a pm and I'll send some details.
