hard dodger vs. soft

In Maine it was nice to have a dodger cruising. Water temp had a lot to do with it, but it gets COLD up there. RARELY do you see anyone with a dodger bopping around the Carib unless it''s crossing a passage. Hard dodgers limit your options. Why unzip when coming to the marina? Connected to bimini? All closed up? You won''t be able to take that very long. Bimini, attached good dodger with frame you can stow. Hardtops? Eh. Buy a pilothouse if that''s what you want. Once in the tropics all you''ll use is the bimini unless it''s raining hard or water''s coming over. Opinion only, not a fact to be found. KW
