Make a Mini Dodger
Cheap protection doesnít have to look cheap.
A companionway slider and hatch boards are the most common type of cabin entry on sailboats. Itís seaworthy, lightweight, and inexpensive. Unfortunately, you canít leave the hatch open when itís raining without getting water below. Swapping the hatch boards for a hinged door is a popular upgrade, but in many boats there simply isnít space for an opened door.
