Thanks Fred and Jerry,

Jerry, the PO had created a cover that is draped over the windows on the dodger when not out sailing. I think it is the sun that causes it to go opaque. After a few years, they are only slightly less clear. But, I decided to remove them one winter, to keep them from providing excess windage during storms, and found that for daysailing, there is better visibility without them. So, I just have them down-below until going off-shore. On SF Bay, I'd probably use them a lot more.

Fred, that's not a part of the boat that normally attracts a photographer's attention, so, these are the best I can do. One showing the snaps on the Turtle, the other showing more of the frame, and the eyes where the windows snap in to the top of the dodger frame.

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!

See the full list here!
