That's the problem we have. Our dodger is set up with attachment points at the aft end to tie in to a bimini... when we figure it out. Right now I'm thinking that a pair of hoops over the helmsman could strecth a bimini over him, and that a separate piece of canvas could go between the dodger and the bimini with a big two-carriage zipper, curved on an arc to allow the mainsheet tackle to pass through wherever it needed to go. Our backstay is also right there, so it's an interesting design problem. For now, we wear hats.
