Yacht Dodger

Hi
Im looking for a marine trimmer in the Pittwater Area NSW.
Can anyone recommend a trimmer to build a new dodger from scratch including frame.
Ideally reasonably priced and reliable.
Thanks Woody

Woody, the terms "Pittwater" and "reasonably priced" and "reliable" are not compatible. I wish you luck, but hold little hope that such a person exists... there are some highly skilled folks practicing in the area, but the good ones are not cheap and tend to be overbooked, resulting in poor reliability.

FWIW, I had my dodger repaired by Scott Sails, and the work was good... but far from inexpensive. Don't know if he does new builds.

Re: Yacht Dodger

Don't know how it works in NSW, but around here, if you say it's for a "yacht," price is 2-3x what it would be for the same item intended for a "boat."

Part of what you can negotiate is whether or not you require marina space for the job. When Scott Sails replaced our dodger windows, we met at a public pier north of the MYC (Salt Pan Cove, iirc) to remove the dodger, and again to re-install it. You could do the same if you have plenty of time to spend that way; otherwise, better to find a guest slip with shore access for whomever you hire to access your boat.

It will cost about what an 8 - 10 yr. old Asian built economy car costs...or more.
