Laminated glass instead of perspex (plexiglass)

My 1976 built fibreglass half-cabin boat (Haines Hunter V19C) has 4 flat panes
of perspex held in aluminium channel as a windscreen.  I am going to replace
the clear stuff but I wondered whether laminated glass would be better than
perspex.  I found a windscreen installer who can supply the glass but he can't
comment on the suitability (whether the hull would flex enough (if at all)) to
cause any problems.

Any advice/experiences out there?

cheers
