When we bought our 35′ sailboat, Hope, in the summer of 2017, we knew our new vessel (and future home) would need a few components for added comfort and safety.
In other words, we were about to tackle some boat projects! 😂
For starters, because our travel goals involve heading to tropical climates, we wanted to make sure Hope has sun and rain protection for our cockpit and companionway—yep, a dodger and bimini.
We weighed the pros and cons of various options. After watching the cruising couple, Desiree and Jordan of Project Atticus, build their own hard dodger, we’d seriously considered this option because we liked the idea of a super sturdy bimini and dodger with potential, less upkeep in the future.
