Dodger question......

Corsair F-24 MK I Deale, MD
My last boat (cruising cat) had a huge hard top. Nice on that boat, but too big for many.

My F-24 had none, and adding anything would make getting around hard and ruin the view forward. It's a sporty boat and I didn't want to ruin that. However, on rainy days getting in and out of the cabin got everything wet. So I built what I call my mini-dodger. I can snap it in place in about 2 minutes and it stores flat under the V-berth. Not so much a dodger as a hood over the entrance way, but it keeps the cabin dry and allows me to leave the slider open whenever I want to.
