" I have hard dodger. Although frequency is decreasing I still bang my head on it at least every other day. " This is one reason that overheads are often padded. A closed-cell camping groundpad (ensolite is off-white) or yoga mat could take the sting out of that.
Or of course, in the US one could sue the dodger maker, for selling such a dangerously unpadded dodger, and use the windfall to buy a real yacht with headroom.(VBG)
I've come to appreciate boats (and other places) that were designed without sharp corners and other invitations to damage. Although I'm told that hard unyielding porcelain toilets are the biggest cause of broken toes, from menfolk stumbling into them in the night. Drunk or sober. Honest!
"My social friends nuts for blowing the money on a new Arai every 5 years or after a good fall." Ah, did you point out to them that it might not be "blowing money" on a new one, since the money you'd wasted on the old one had already saved your noggin?
