Re: Installing dodger questions

You are very likely to use the dodger or parts of it for occasional grabbing onto for stability.. I don't think Velcro will really be up to that part of the task. Snaps would be better overall.

Another way to anchor a front portion is to sew some luff tape along the bottom and install a groove track on deck to accept it.
