Hard Dodger on SHANGRI LA


Hard Dodger on SHANGRI LA – Michael Homsany, Kendra Pinsker

Design goals were for the dodger to have a removable top, be dry and comfy, strong enough to take a large wave, hold the solar panels, collect water and for the lines to flow into the lines of the DE.  Time will tell on the strength, it is dry and comfy, and collects water well. The lines are in the eye of the beholder, but it looks ok to me (I can see it finished).
