Dodger frame

Anyone know where I can get a dodger frame for a PS34? just looking for the frame. Or if any of you hard dodger folks have your old frames you want to be rid of please give me a holler. We are in the Clear Lake, Texas area.
Thanks,
Erika

You might want to contact the factory in NC and see if they can sell you one as well.

RichH will become famous soon enough
Try Island Nautical Canvass .... they make 'stock' off-the-shelf dodgers and biminis.

Many years ago they had the most competitive pricing over all others.

Island Nautical Canvas


You can also try "Sailrite.com" as they have the 'stock' components, but you may need to do a 'little' tube bending and joining, etc. to make a perfect fit ... easy to do if you still have the OEM frame and have a tube bender .... and careful 'patience'.

Oceangirl. I'm having my dodger & bimini redone here in Corpus. I decided not to go with a hard dodger. If you want, I'll send you the specs, put you in contact with the outfit that's making it.

Re: Dodger frame

Hello. I would appreciate it very much if you can send me specs on your dodger and bimini - if you have specs I can double check my own...

Re: Dodger frame

Update, finally
We have a canvas guy coming Saturday to design our new dodger. We do not have a frame so we are building one. We will make a ss welded dodger frame, the no fold kind. We want something strong. If you have done this project and have some insight please post! If you have a "my favorite thing about my dodger" input please post!

Our dodger will have a rain fly so we can do away with our Bimini.
Thanks
Erika

Re: Dodger frame

On Coorie Doon when I had a Bimini built we built it with more strength and frames on top for solar. To improve visibility at the helm we raised the Bim above the dodger and put zippers on the bim and the dodger to attach a windscreen so in foul Maine weather I could keep some of the salt off my glasses. In any event what we retained was the grab handle at the rear of the dodger which frankly gets used often. Think about an extra tube welded on at the aft end of the dodger, wrapped in leather. Bob Perry likes the dodger to be slightly lower on the forward end to fit in with the boats lines. The hard dodger PSC makes looks odd to me having a flat roof which makes it look too blunt unlike the forward end of the house. Enjoy Al
