Please describe the project specifications

Recover existing 2 bow dodger using Sunbrella Doubonnet Tweed fabric, with 5 piece removable soft enclosure.

Clear dodger Bimini connector, zipping to dodger and Bimini.

Three bow Bimini top using Sunbrella Doubonnet Tweed fabric with three side removable soft enclosure.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The boat originally only had a dodger. Customer wanted to add a Bimini top.

What is unique or complex about the project?

By welding the front bar of the Bimini to the back of the dodger, it eliminated the front bar of the Bimini which would have caused an obstructed entry and exit. This made it easier to get in and out of the cockpit. We were able to incorporate the clear dodger/Bimini connector into this area also.

Aft end of Bimini attached to a Bimini bow, as opposed to attaching to the boom gallows to accommodate the main sheet. A removable connector piece fills this gap.

What were the results of the project?

The result was above and beyond what the customer expected and was very pleased.
