Nothing but good things to say about IN. We are on our 2nd IN dodger, it's going on 10 yrs now. We've had the windows replaced and the stitching renewed on we did on it's predecessor and it's served us very well indeed.
We keep the windows covered against the sun with removable covers held on with snaps (which we lubricate with every now and than with a drop of STP rubbed on each snap with my finger), and we rinse the plastic when we wash the boat...and NEVER use any kind of cleaner on it (the plastic)...just a gentle dry with a soft, previously washed terry towel.
We will be replacing our dodger this year with a locally made unit. Island doesn't make a reinforced frame that I'm aware of and it's the one thing we wish we had in a dodger...a strong frame which we can grab for support when climbing into the cockpit. But the new one will imitate the old as much as possible. We really like the jaunty look.
Working with Island has always been a pleasant experience even though we're on opposite difficulty whatsoever.
