Anyone tried dodger?

Our new-to-us 2001 Beneteau 411 came with what's referred to as a bimini with windshield. We would prefer a dodger/bimini combination which, when standing, provides full, unobstructed 360 degree visibility and when sitting provides protection from spray. Can anyone recommend a good canvas maker in Florida since that will be our next destination? Ideally, the canvas maker would have a template for the 411 which might save time and expense. I think the dodger design may be difficult given the large fore and aft distance between front of companion way hatch and cockpit side seats.
Pete

I think what you are reffering to is what we in uk call a 'Spray Hood' an absoloute must here, dogers are fitted to guard rails each side.

aquaholic, if they haven't found it after two years, they're not likely to.

But here in the States, a "spray hood" is a small, usually flexible and collapsible, hood that protects just a companionway hatch from spray, while a "dodger" is a much larger wider affair gives some protection to the entire cockpit.
