Aloha Martin,
Looks like we'll be comfortable for the cruise! Can't wait to see it in person. I'll bet folks will want to see the dodger when the glazing is installed.

Nice job …thanks for the wonderful pics.
Just getting our hard dodger finished up.
Hopfully I've managed to attach some pics.
Its heavy, but I’m not winning any races at almost 20tons.
If I had it to do over I may have made less, but larger window openings.

Hard Dodger? I was kinda thinking of something kinda like this myself - albeit way down the road .......So have been peering at the Photos very closely!.........I guess have got a little bit spoilt with the Wheelhouse on my Father's Motorboat

Ya John...Windows next week. Wish I had em now...it's cold here compared to Alohaville.
James...Nice job Dude!!! My feeling is if you cannot stand on the dodger, what use is it?

...and here we have the final pictures of the dodger done. The windows are vynil with sunbrella edging. It is snapped to the body.
Total price to build this was around $600. My labor was close to 100 hours.

male vs female moulds?

Considering that I have NO experience with fibre glass, can you tell me the pros and cons of male vs female moulds. I'm sure it will be very helpful if you could.
Thanks,
