We've got sliding glass. Locked in either open or closed position when underway (99% of time, closed).

I think the glass is stronger than some of the other installations we've seen.

Given our normal boating areas, if we've got significant worrisome water coming over the transom, we've maybe got way more problems than a minor detail like a sliding glass door.

Could happen if we tried to back down violently on a big marlin or whatever in steep seas... but since we don't fish like that, where they are... no worries.
