I built this dodger for long time customer and friend Pat. The original was made by us when he bought this boat 11 years ago. I think it looked still pretty good with no tears or breaks in the windows. It could have made it at least a few more years but Pat likes to keep his boat up really nice. The new dodger has only a few minor design improvements from the original. The design of our “Standard” dodger is a real classic that has been in development for more than 40 years.
