Full Description

The Make Your Own Dodger DVD comprises of step-by-step video and written PDF instructions on building a dodger. A dodger (or spray hood) can provide excellent shade or shelter from rain or spray when under sail or at the dock.
This dodger video is extremely comprehensive including how to cut the frame to size and set proper stance, pattern, create and join panels, fabricate sleeves, install windows, construct straps and side skirts, bind edges, attach fasteners, and mount any bow dodger. Detailed written PDF instructions are also included on every DVD.

This DVD is included with all Sailrite Dodger Complete Kits and Skin Only Kits.
