Re: Installing dodger questions
I would highly recommend against snaps, unless you are sailing in fresh water. They corrode up pretty quickly and become unusable, often tearing out with the pressure necessary to open them. There are Twist Studs that are stronger, never corrode and they cannot open accidentally. The only drawback is you must have the female pieces installed by a canvas person, unless you want to buy a $300.00 tool.
