Michael, I expect to be on the water a little before Memorial Day. Usually its too cold and windy and I have a fair amount of work travel scheduled before then.

Maryland Mark, I bought the Eisenglass from Ted's lead.

I had my sheet metal shop make up aluminum plates to sandwich the Eisenglass and mount to the area above my openings. One plate had Pem Studs (1/4 x 20) and the other had through holes. I used Stainless studs and wing nuts. I used strapping material to cross over each other and hold up the panels when not in use, similar to the way cruisers hold up their Eisenglass. I use bungee cords to hold down the bottom of the panels. I used brass grommets to make sure the panels did not tear through. I used Tapcons to mount to the assembly to the brick wall.
Any local sheet metal fabricator can make the bars, I used 2" wide by 48" ( I think) inch long pieces and placed the mounting hardware on 12ish" centers with one 2" from each end. I used .060 thick aluminum.
