Bow dodger/canopy/spray hood

call it what you will,
i was looking and asking around the forum without much joy as to how to make one, where to buy etc.
anyway i found this on ebay, might not be to everyones taste but it's in the post and will do me, no measuring, cutting, sourcing equipment etc (i know thats part of the thrill for some, and im not knocking it )
just thought id stick it up here as someone is manufacturing this and at least if it fails i have someone to complain to , rather than give myself a hard time for not getting it right.

Look forward to a report when you have it fitted. On the Ebay listing the description says it "clips" to the rubbing strake but the image seems to show a set of buttons that would need to be glued to the tubes.

Yep I was wondering about the way it attaches.

I have one of these. Nice piece of kit on my Honwave 3.5 AE. Easy to fit and well made. Did a post on it somewhere a while back but I can't remember the firm now but it was for a different make !Click image for larger version

It was Excel inflatables. I seem to remember the first chap that I contacted was less than helpful, the second gentleman couldn't have been more helpful.The buttons and straps needed to be glued in position. I got North West Ribs and inflatables to do mine. Nice job and a nice outfit to deal with based at Chorley.

it came with clips for the rub strake and two tubes of glue
i think i can make this work without the need to glue anything on permanently

Yes, I've been looking for something like this for my T40-AE.

Paddlers would you say it's worth having on your T35?

Get cracking Andyadam I want to see this fitted and hear your verdict ��

Wouldn't be without it now. You really notice it when it's raining how much protection it affords. Also at full chat it deflects the wind.
The only downside is not accessing the bow eye when we anchor for fishing. It's a nice piece of kit for the money.
