Mosquito screens for a boat hatch

My coworker's got a sailboat, and she's planning to make some mosquito net frames for the hatch. There are existing tracks that these will slide down into, and the frames themselves will be trapezoidal.
A few questions: How does she secure the screens into the frames (screen door grommet in routed grooves?); what type of screen (fiberglass?); and short of teak, what's a readily-available wood that will weather well?
Thanks, Jamie

Routed grooves and screen "spline" material are best.
what type of screen

Yup
and short of teak, what's a readily-available wood that

Teak. Use teak. These will get a fair bit of use and the actual volume of wood needed per screen is so small that the $$ saved by using a cheaper wood simply would not translate to "worth it".

Good luck Rob
