Thanks for the reply. Just "looking" I thought a bimini would work while sailing. I'm just thinking ahead a little on what can be done. I don't think I'd want to sail with the side panels in place, but definately would like to keep the bimini up.
I've seen a couple of home built fiberglass dodgers that didn't look bad at all, but think we'll stick with canvas and frame for the cockpit enclosure. One thing that does concern me a little is adding too much weight, such as a large wood cored T top etc. I'd rather conserve and have alittle more water, fuel, and food. I'm a bit reluctant to modify configurations without being sure I'm not mucking up a critical structural or load bearing point. I guess that's why this board is so important.
Thanks again.
