We have a dodger and bridge deck main sheet traveler. Ours is a 32' however. It would be nice if the dodger came a bit more aft but we love it. As it is, the sheets can rub a little on the side frame when a bit off the wind. The key is a good measurement leaveing several inches of space (about 6 with ours) between the end of the dodger and the sheet. A mock up may be a good idea. Something else we discovered when trying to fit a "bimini". Boats with end boom sheeting or cabin top sheeting can attach the aft end of the bimini to the gallows and the forward end to the dodger. Not so the forward end with bridge deck sheeting. It requires a frame work or some convolusions with the forward end that may or may not work out. I can answere to that one next season.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
