Cruising thrugh Life



We came to the Chesapeake for one primary reason. To add a hard dodger to the boat. W/ wanted a dodger and if we were to have one I wanted a hard top. One I could fall against, lean on, and sit on if need be.

There were only two places in the states were Hard Dodgers were fabricated and made for boats. One with a company in Washington State and one with a Company in the Chesapeake. I actually had tried to talk the maker of the dodger that lived in Washington into flying down and fitting one on our boat. He could make it a vacation and stay with us. But although he was quite nice and said if we sent him all the info and measurements he would consider aiding us but he would not come. He was particular and his work was meticulas.

Since there was no way we were going to get the boat to the Seattle area anytime soon we liked the East Coast option of the WaveStopper.
