I must have read the same thread as k1vsk on Sailboatowners.com Not much nice said there. Despite having a "standard" boat, the dodger on your Cat 30 is probably different from the one on the Cat30 on the mooring next to you. Especially if yours is 25 years old. Who made the original dodger? Are they still in business? Are they at all convenient? You will likely be much happier with the results from an outfit who will come out to your boat, measure, and then make the cover fit properly (or close to it) the first time. It may take more than one try to make it right. Dealing with someone near where you are will make it easier - and in the long run, cheaper.
