Those are good pictures Casey. I think you are going to have to alter the dodger. It really should be no large job to do this. It looks like you can easily lower the back arch by 4" or so, either by re bending which might look funny because the last arch would not match the previous two or by shortening it which will require a re-cut of the canvas. I would first try rebending it and see how it works. If not, then cut 4" off the rear arch, sliding the hinged arches up 4" and get the canvas recut along the arch, leaving everything else as it is. If you can't trim the sails properly, I don't see any alternative.
