Re: Installing dodger questions

Thanks all. This confirms velcro as a bad idea. If you look close each key corner has the female/receiver part of a common sense connector so I think I could get away at least for temporary with installing some studs where needed. To show how cheap I can be, i took the dodger home, let it warm up indoors and then with a hairdryer got the strategiesStrataglass supple again. I then cleaned the torn sections carefully and with more heat pulled the tears together nicely and applied clear vinyl tape. Again a temp fix but one that causes the dodger to better hold its shape. This will allow me to go for a tight fit on the boat using the common sense connectors. After that I will get better pics and work with canvas guy during hot summer months. Hope to update with pics unless it looks too ugly. :-)
