A dodger (also known as a spray-hood) is a frame-supported canvas (usually with clear vinyl windows) structure partially protecting a helmsman and other occupants of a sailboat from harsh weather and seas. It covers part of the cockpit and the entrance (or “companionway”) into the interior of the sailboat. Dodgers will add to the comfort, protection and style to your boat. Custom design your own dodger or see our gallery for some potential options that fit you and your sailboat.
