That's a beautiful dodger, but do you actually do much sailing with the bimini in place?

Not being able to sight over the top of a dodger drives me nuts :-) More and more of the boats I'm running lately are featuring very high profile dodgers, that even at 6' 5", I struggle to see over... These are often mated with a bimini that might be 2-3 inches higher, leaving only a narrow slit to try to sight through after the connecting panel has been removed... No problem at the dock or at anchor, but a real impediment to safe navigation/good sailing, at least for me...
