    Well, shit. Should be working, but as a newcomer here, I am finding that SA is an irresistible time-sink; talking about Victoria has sent me thumbing through the archives, so here're some images from the Master Mariners race on SF Bay, maybe 1991.

    Hard dodgers and covered cockpits

    I really like the approach taken by New Morning. Having the helm in the open with the forward cockpit well-covered looks like an excellent compromise.

    Hard dodgers and covered cockpits

    I would love to get some opinions and ideas on hard dodgers. I have traditionally been pretty dismissive of them, but for the past several years I have been spending time on a Cooper 410 on SF Bay whose original owner added a steel and glass cockpit enclosure that I have a love-hate relationship...
