Re: Anyone tried dodger?

aquaholic, if they haven't found it after two years, they're not likely to.

But here in the States, a "spray hood" is a small, usually flexible and collapsible, hood that protects just a companionway hatch from spray, while a "dodger" is a much larger wider affair gives some protection to the entire cockpit.

I think what you are reffering to is what we in uk call a 'Spray Hood' an absoloute must here, dogers are fitted to guard rails each side.

Anyone tried dodger?

Our new-to-us 2001 Beneteau 411 came with what's referred to as a bimini with windshield. We would prefer a dodger/bimini combination which, when standing, provides full, unobstructed 360 degree visibility and when sitting provides protection from spray. Can anyone recommend a good canvas maker in Florida since that will be our next destination? Ideally, the canvas maker would have a template for the 411 which might save time and expense. I think the dodger design may be difficult given the large fore and aft distance between front of companion way hatch and cockpit side seats.
