Re: Dodger advice please

The front of the dodger clips on to it with press studs. The lip stops rain and spray being driven under the dodger, making for a nice dry space in moderate conditions.

Re: Dodger advice please

i am dreaming up a nice wood one for my ketch.
it will be created from beautiful hardwoods and som e ply, and will hold solar panels as well as keep sun off an d tropical walls of rain outside.
my cockpit is aft, so is easier.
creativity is a plus in sailing life....must think outside the box.

So you don't have lines going back to the cockpit?

Re: Dodger advice please

Only the mainsheet, it runs through a small hole in the lip on the port side.

Re: Dodger advice please

I call mine a cowl..... but its a bit bigger..
I run 10 bits of string through it.... you would have to be driving her very hard to be worried about water passing through the holes.
Dodger has beading? or piping? along the bottom which runs along a track
Observe the hatch 'garage' which has a pair of dorades mounted on top.
First photo you can see the detail on the after side.

Re: Dodger advice please

I don't have a coaming so my dodger fastens to the cabin house with "lift the dot" type stud fasteners. You'd be surprised at the jet of water I've experienced a couple times.
I'll have to devise something when the time comes for a dodger replacement. Sure wish my boat was originally equipped with coamings (lips).

Re: Dodger advice please

I wrote a three part series on constructing a dodger for our ketch.
Windscreen and Dodger Part I - Blog Article View
We had complications with hatch placements and winches.
I also wanted to ensure an aesthetic look that wouldn't detract from the overall classic lines of the boat.
You mast complicates the issue, however if the top of the windscreen aligns with the mast the screens can be cut to allow for the mast. Sealing at the mast wouldn't be perfect but everything is a compromise.
You could, like me construct it in glass or considering it is a steel boat the windscreen could be steel.
Our collapsible and repositionable stainless bimini is covered in Stamoid and the clear panels are rhino glass polycarb. The centre panel unzips and folds up to the bimini to allow maximum breeze.
6 years and about 10,000nm and the unit still looks like new.

Re: Dodger advice please

We need better photos of the boat for any meaningful dodger recommendation. A view looking slightly down at the boat, so we can see the deck layout.
