Thanks to all for the advice so far (which I will take). Which I chose to interpret as spend time sailing instead!!
At the risk of exposing my lack of experience with yachts further there are 3 related issues that I would pick your brains on,
(1) how far forward of the aft cabin
bulkhead should the dodger go?
(2) what is the best way of leading the various control lines through the dodger?
(3) Is it better have a free standing rather than relying on the boom (in part) for support i.e., a stainless steel
frame of some description.
Any one got some happy snaps of a good set up?
