I have just bought a Wauquiez Hood 38 Mark 1 - this is the one with the submarine hatch on deck.
The boat has a dodger, but no bimini. Because of the need to be able to get on deck to go below, mounting a bimini needs to be carefully done so that it does not become a nuisance in normal cruising or a menace in heavy weather.
I cannot really forego it, because I'm fair and the boat is in the tropics (Langkawi, Malaysia).
If anyone has photographs of this boat with a bimini, and/or recommendations of where to turn to get good examples, I'd be appreciative. I've already emailed the Hood design people, and will do the same to Wauquiez.
