In Topic: Bridge clearance and heel angles

I've seen some large canvas buckets you can tie to the end of your boom.  Swing the boom out, fill with water and you heel your boat to get under the bridge without worrying about wind direction,  Not sure if they were purchased or home made.  Amount of water and angle of boom will determine the heel angle, should easily get up to 20-25 degrees.

The dodger looks great on paper.  But how does it work for Kim?  I've been on too many boats where the dodger obstructs the view ahead. The rest of the build is amazing.  Beautiful boat.  Thanks Bob for sharing Catari, Francis Lee and now KDH's build.
