Hard dodgers

Consider the added ''windage'' that an ultra high dodger will add and the strength requirements to keep it from ripping away. Also consider what will happen to this when a boarding wave hits it. At least with a soft dodger, you can roll it up! With a hard dodger you have to wonder if it will still be there after the storm. Smaller (less vulnerable) is better on the open ocean.
