Re: CS36 Merlin Bimini/Dodger Configuration

Thanks for the input, guys. I suspected there wasn't much I could do about the bimini/dodger configuration and it appears that I'm unfortunately right. The boat does have a full enclosure I can use but only when the boom is shackled out on the toe rail.

As for the tacking angles discussion, I'm not a racer of any sort... and I have the wing keel as well, but I've been pretty happy with the boat's performance. In any case, I have a short list of issues to address before I decide how tightly she can tack comfortably.
