Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
Out, if your dodger is painted white, I wouldn't worry about heat in the cockpit. You'll be much cooler with the hard dodger than without it. The opening hatch in the windscreen is nice because with the boat pointing into the wind at anchor you get a nice breeze into the cockpit. Nice, but not essential.
