Thanks Matt

I'm not a fan of the roundish Hanse sprayhood.   It seems to have blind spots and the shape doesn't do much for me.     I also like the bimini and dodger to be connected.  Shade is one thing, but water from waves and chop riding over the dodger and into the cockpit can be avoided this way.    A bimini is also a great spot to place the solar (pockets).    See attached.

Hi Matt, Iíve just had a new dodger made for my 355 Penzance so happy to take some detailed measurements and share these.

Our boat is on the southern end of the Whitsundays in Aussie and we wonít be back there for another 10 days. Happy to take sone detailed pictures and measurements to assist as it took a bit of trial and error to get this right.
