What is a Dodger?


A dodger is an extension of your boat, it should follow the lines and curves, which is why the design is important to complement the aesthetic of your boat. A dodger is not just for looks, it’s function is to protect the companionway from harsh elements. Compass Canvas uses Sunbrella fabric, Solarfix thread and Polycarbonate Windows, which means no leaks, rot, or tears, to provide you with the highest quality canvas. At Compass Canvas, we work with our customers to make the best design for a durable dodger that meets your needs.

Benefits of a Dodger  


A dodger adds comfort, style and longevity to your sailboat. It gives you protection from the harshness of the ocean, such as wind and sea spray, while offering shelter from the rain or sun.

A dodger will give you more opportunities to get out on the water, no matter the weather, making every sail more comfortable.
