I'm assuming you already have the hoop. If so I'd take that to a boat canvas place and have them make it for you. There are a few different clear materials that you can make them from. Some are prone to cracking.

What color is your boat? Won't clear reflect sunlight when you might not need it to? Mine I had had a gray canvas skirt around the top.

Canvas casts shadows, clear doesn't.
