Dodger for Atom Ant

Recommended Posts

The guy who did the last race on his small cat formed a dodger like that in clear plastic over a male mould that he had built. Flexible but strong and basically lidded the hatch, and could be removed.

Think it's worth considering the fore-and-aft "screens" running down from the sides of the hatchway as shown in Changed's first shot, to help keep any sideways spray drift/water from wet sails coming down the hatch, away from your nav station, quarterberths etc.

 

(The ones in the photo look like they are part of the boat structure but you can do them in PVC/clears so you don't lose any light so they are easily removable when you don't need them).

I liked the slopping washboards. Nice place to sit with the bean bag with a little pram style hood over the companionway. I have made those side curtains from clears but I like the idea of doing them in ply and glassing them in. Good structural members.

This custom designed and built solo trans tasman boat has a nice dodger and protected cockpit, maybe you could do something similar, or even swap boats for the race?

that pedestal looks like it could double as a BBQ plate, cockpit heating & hot food source :thumbup: :thumbup: brilliant :lol:

like this? it would be cramped but it'd keep you dry. BTS extending the cabin top is a good idea, keep all the lines hidden while still looking fashionable
