Re: Hatch/Doghouse removal question on B29.9

Thanks for the correction. I have been calling it that all my life (and i'm no spring chicken).

It seems a proper doghouse is bigger, more like a fixed dodger that does cover the companionway, but thats not the primary purpose. I am wondering if that name is commonly used in Scotland, where I grew up and started sailing. Well, anyway, this old dog will have to learn a new trick and call it something else! Sea hood sounds about right.
