Rhode Island Dodger Source

Time to replace the dodger.. While I'm at it, I may spring for a new frame to get a little more height (and less flex). Any recommendations for someone in the Rhode Island area? I care about cost - but more about quality and good fit. I hate saggy dodgers.

great dodger

I have a Thurston (now called Thurston Quantum) dodger which is one of the best I've seen and the best I've ever had. They are in Bristol. Top shelf workmanship.

Yet another vote for Thurston. I have had two dodgers made by them and the work is superb.

Thanks. That's a name from the past. I had some Thurston sails as a boy on a boat made of that new wonder material - fiberglass.
