Re: Installing dodger questions
When I had a dodger made for my boat 6 years ago I just asked if using velcro rather than zippers was an option. I was told that velcro just didn't hold up.
For attaching the dodger to the cabin and cockpit he used a combination of pull it up and common sense fasteners.
My own experience has been anyplace I've used velcro outside I'm lucky if it lasts 2 years before needing replacement.
