Hi Jerry,

Sannyasin has a dodger that snaps to the front of the turtle hatch cover, and has a SS frame built up over the companion way. Sunbrella with clear windows snap onto this frame. The dodger is really really important for keeping the person on watch comfortable on a cold wet night.

Then, I have a piece of Sunbrella that slides into a groove on the top of the dodger frame, and stretches back to the boom gallows and forms a sunshade for the cockpit.

There are side curtains that I've never put up, but they would snap to the sides of the sunshade and hang down for a full cockpit enclosure (with windows).

I find the sunshade and dodger to be sufficient.

You can probably see some of that in this picture.
