Re: New Dodger

You obviously did a really good job executing yours to meet your needs. To have it designed specially for your boat - was it within the realm of human affordability?

I have already installed a furler, had a genoa reconstructed, had the bottom professionally painted and a few other things. This will be my last project for this year. I really felt the pressure to get a lot of this done because she is going to be docked up in an area with very few services close by. It seemed like a good idea to go ahead, bite the bullet and git'r done.

I probably need to be careful though. Can you over improve a boat for her value the way you can over improve a house for the neighbourhood? She is 35 years old, but beautiful to my eyes at least. That boat as a hole in the water thing... I just need to make sure the hole isn't too big!!!
