The cockpit of a yacht can be quite exposed to the elements; consequently, sitting out in the cockpit during these times is normally an uncomfortable experience. The guardrail area on either side of the vessel adjacent to the cockpit, is perfectly situated for panels to be attached to, therefore offering some side protection from the wind and spray and enhancing your comfort in the cockpit.
Dodgers are generally made from UV stable acrylic canvas and available in a range of colours to complement your existing canvas-work. Nickel plated eyelets are installed, and ample lashing cord or cable ties are supplied for tensioning to the guardrails and stanchions. Alternative methods of attachment are available if required upon request.
The supplied height for yacht cockpit dodgers is 550mm and we offer a choice of five different lengths, to suit any boat. They are rectangular in shape, and made to a high standard and finish, with quality marine grade components and materials. The product image is for illustration purposes only - eyelets are evenly spaced to provide adequate support to the fabric.
As with all manufactured products the C&J Dodgers are guaranteed for 12 months against defective workmanship and/or materials.
Dodgers are also an ideal location for your vessels name or sail number to be advertised. For an optional extra nominal charge, PVC lettering and numbers can be added to the Dodgers. Our lettering is sewn on to the Dodgers and is available in a wide range of colours, font types and styles. Furthermore, where possible, we can also add to your Dodgers; cut outs for cleats, winches or blocks. We can even add convenient storage pockets for furling lines and those small valuable items such as a hand-held GPS or mobile phone.
