Some of us still monitor it.  Its a great group to learn things about old boats and how to maintain them.

Al, have you seen this link on making a dodger?  This fellow did a nice job.

I need a dodger for my 27 ft ODay.  Is making one a realistic project?

Will eventually want to install a hard bimini also, so I can carry solar panels.
