hard dodger vs. soft

I looked at the boat on the web. I think that the shape of the cockpit would make for a difficult doghouse installation.

I have seen this kind of thing go both ways.
Some added doghouses are ok, some are horrible aesthetically.

There is a window product called EZ2CY that is very stiff and built as a panel that cannot be folded. It hinges up out of the way. It is easy to open and provides excellent visibility in the long run.

I think you would be better off with a dodger that is stepped to 6 feet from the cockpit sole just at the companionway. Download the picture from the caliber website and draw in some shapes.
