My boat had the original dodger (the one you see in the J Boats original flyers) and it still worked but was beyond repair. I ended up having a local dodger guy make a new one three inches higher than the original. It turned out to still look like a good fit, I can still see over the top and it's exactly right for the boom when sheeted in hard. I don't recall the height measurement and I can't measure it for you at the moment as the boat is still up north on Lake Ontario while I'm here in Florida. I went to all extremes in my thinking prior to the final design but it somehow managed to come out right. My advice, be sure to not make it too tall.

I'm in the final steps of having a new dodger built, and now I have doubts. How many of you have dodgers and how high do they set over the companion way? Can you see over the top when sailing? I'm conflicted as to keeping it lower to see over and as high as possible for clearance for entrance/exiting the cabin.
