h2 - I see what you mean re dodger - compromises start appearing in unexpected places as LOA decreases ! These pics are all we have re dodger / mainsheet fixings .......
For hot climate sailing i wonder if they've designed a bimini from dodger to arch ....... it means you have to steer from the rails for fwd visibilty but would be a nice covered cockpit (assuming the dodger frame isn't too flimsy
