PSC designed dodgers

Steve and his crew are drawing up some possible dodgers. He sketched up this one for Kon Jeni-Al, my 37 footer. The nice thing about this is the way they designed the rails to come through as hand grips on the top of the dodger. I wanted a hard top for future solar cells. They're still getting the prices together. Can't get any more customized than this for PSC's! ~ Alan

I want one! Please keep us posted and send pics if you move forward with this project. Can you stand on the hardtop?

In Thumper's words, "It'll hold the weight of a couple of people".

One thing I like about it is the minimum windage. That's the one thing that's kept me away from ordering one before.

I'm also interested. I will anxiously await updates. I assume the cost would go down as the quantity went up......

Yeah, I'm not really sure of the price anyway, but I bet it'd be pretty good if we all ordered at once.

Maybe they'll build a prototype first. I'll check.

The Wavestopper that I purchased many years ago had thin Lexan windows sewn into Sunbrella, with zippers, for the front and sides. The Lexan avoids the UV degradation of vinyl and is more forgiving than glass. Although you still have to be careful to avoid scratches. The Wavestopper was a great design and perhaps the factory can model that, but I would attach the Sunbrella to the hard dodger somewhat differently.

I'd be interested in one for my '83 PSC 37 as well. Have you thought at all about a cockpit sunshade design too?

Thanks

They're installing the windows and canvas this week! In the meantime, here's a photo I posted under the thread " Solar Panel locations". Steve and Thumper have designed this nice hard top that is set up to accomodate solar panesl if/when I put some up.
