Re: Sailboat performance change

Instead of raising the dodger, consider lowering it so that you can see over it. That's the situation that we were in when we bought Victoria. Looking through a dodger is not nearly like looking through a windshield of a car, even with pristine Stratglas. So we lowered the dodger to a height that my wife could see over. The dodger is really only meant to be sat under, after all. It looks better and the angle of the forward screen is more raked, better matching the cabin top lines. Faster is right.
