This hard dodger was made in Sidney BC. Shown with and without canvas. The top picture is during a race, which we won. The dodger extends quite far over the cockpit so you can sit under it out of the rain. We have a back curtain which turns it into a two person wheelhouse, we can steer from there using the Raymarine S-100 autopilot remote. It is strong enough to stand on. We have two 75-watt solar panels mounted on top.
