I just call it the "ugly blue crappy thing spoiling the beautifull line of my cabin that my wife made me install so she gets less wind in her face and Fred can lie down and take a nap, and doesn't let me see forward as I wanted, but I remove it when she's not there".
Oh, come might ruin the line of the boat, but seeing Fred curled up like a cat over the companionway (a snug spot he might not be able to fit next year!) is pretty damned cute. Put in a padeye and Luis can have a Jolly Jumper hung over the steps!

(Just kidding, Alex...I know turning your boat into a creche would not make you a happy skipper...)

By the way, I have a bimini, no dodger, on the old boat and neither on the new...but I'm going to have a bimini installed. Dodgers are for cruisers...not voyagers...
