Mariner Canvas Company, New Bern, N.C.
This project, which won a 2010 MFA Award of Excellence in the dodger category, is a large, one-piece dodger with maximum view. The solid, self-supporting frame is made of heavy-gauge stainless steel and includes four stanchions, outside side grab bars, aft grab rail and stainless steel rivets securing all eye-ends for safety. The side Strataglass windows are separate panels, contoured to fit the framework. For exceptional strength and clean finish, Patio500 is used for an inside lining on all front and side panels and the aft grab area, plus leather chafe protection.
