yacht spray hood

Our sprayhoods are well known for having excellent fit, rigidity and style. By manipulating the shape of the cover panels during manufacture, we create tension to ensure the hood is a whole rigid structure. Additional reinforcement where needed, expert patterning, the latest CAD technology and high quality manufacturing standards all combine to produce the best fitting product on the market.

Upgrades and Additional Options

Osea window upgrade.

This laminated window material offers exceptional clarity and gives clear vision throughout. For those who always leave their sprayhood up and in place, it offers the same great protection of the elements as our standard window material, but with greater clarity.

NB. It is not suitable for those who wish to sail with the hood collapsed, as it should be handled with extreme care.

Our people sail themselves: recreational and competition

Sprayhood for your sailboat, motorboat or sloop

A sprayhood (also called spray hood called) is indispensable for sailing trips with overcoming water, rain or wind. A sprayhood offers multiple possibilities because it also protects you from bright sunlight. Are you looking for a sprayhood for your sailboat, motorboat or sloop? Then you have come to the right place! In our sail workshop we have made thousands of spray hoods. So we like to think along with you and hear all your wishes.

Please let us know what function your sprayhood should have? Will you use the sprayhood against the sun, wind or rain, for example? Then advise then: 

  • How many windows you need
  • The mounting options
  • The color and material 

What is a sprayhood or tube hood?

A sprayhood is a canvas canopy that stands on your boat like a tent through a tubular frame. The frame provides protection from weather and wind. Because it blocks rain, water, wind and sun, you can sail extra comfortably. 

Would you like to buy the right sprayhood for your sloop, sailboat or motorboat? Then quickly read on how we can help you further. 

Buying a sprayhood

The price of a sprayhood depends on a number of factors. Consider:

  • Number of windows
  • Addition of zippers and fasteners

We look at the possibilities of your boat as if it were our own. We keep sprayhood prices in mind. If a lot of customization is involved, we'll tell you right away. That way you can decide if specific needs are worth it. 

Fabric and Cloth for your sprayhood

The color and type of cloth for your sprayhood greatly affects the appearance of the hood and your boat. In addition, the lifespan is also determined by this. It is therefore important to use good quality fabrics. Zeilmakerij De Vries Maritiem works closely with several fabric suppliers and we only use the very best fabrics. We work together with: 

  • Weatthermax
  • Sauleda Masacril
  • Sattler Yachtmaster  

Sprayhood maintenance

"How long does a sprayhood last?" We hear this question often. The lifespan varies. This is due to both the materials used and exposure to the elements. Those who maintain their sprayhood properly increase its lifespan. Therefore, we recommend cleaning the sprayhood regularly with mild materials. 

Sprayhood options and purchase 

When you order a sprayhood, the first thing we discuss is how you want to use the sprayhood. Do you sail intensively? Is your boat often in full sun? Do you sail fresh or salt water more often? The answers to these questions determine which material is best for your boat's sprayhood.

Then we will hear your wishes and ideas about the design. Where do you want windows, openings and bimini's? You can think of all kinds of options. Our expert sailmakers make it all come true in our sailmaking shop. For inspiration, we share some common desires. 

Sprayhood with aft tent or cockpit tent

Depending on the size of the boat, we apply a tubular frame of 22 to 35 mm stainless steel. The hood can be expanded with a connecting rear tent or cockpit tent, which is zipped to the tubular hood. This extension is also called a tarpaulin. This extension increases the covered living space in your boat. 

Sprayhood with skylight for good visibility

It would be a shame if your sprayhood is all finished and installed, and you miss a window for good visibility. After all, some things you don't notice until it's in use. That's why we think with you even before production. For example, we ask if you want to see important instruments while sailing, or the top of the mast. Then we can make a roof window in the ceiling of the sprayhood. 

Sprayhood with extra grip for holding

Are you looking for a sprayhood with firm hold? Then you can choose a sprayhood with roll handle, also called gripper bar. This sturdy handle is used when getting in or out of the cockpit. Because we have developed a unique double fitting, the roll bar or gripper bar is extra strong and durable. You can also choose to cover your stainless steel gripper bar with genuine leather. It provides a luxurious look and a pleasant grip. 

Options of a sprayhood. Examples of windows and zippers on different boats. Made by De Vries Maritiem, based in Lemmer.

Sprayhood cleaning: tips for the best results

You can extend the life of your sprayhood and keep your boat looking nice. We explain step by step how to clean your sprayhood properly. First, use a microfiber cloth to clean the windows. Use a solution of water and a small splash of vinegar. Ingredients you probably have in your home. Important: Do not use miracle sponges for windows! The sponges seem effective, but they remove an important coating from the windows. After every sailing trip on salt water, rinse the sprayhood with water. UV is harmful to cloth and windows. Make sure the sprayhood is covered by a winter tent or sun canopy whenever possible. 

Example of a dirty and cleaned sprayhood after maintenance at De Vries Maritiem, sailmaker in Lemmer

Do you have little time? Then we will clean the sprayhood for you - quickly, effectively and professionally. Your sprayhood will look like new again. If sprayhood cleaning is not of much use because your equipment is in poor condition we will of course tell you.

​Sprayhood for your sailboat

At Kalechesmeden, we have extensive experience in making coatings and canopies for boats, and we can also make sprayhoods, which are a type of canopy primarily used for sailing boats.

We can make sprayhoods in many different sizes and the quality is of the highest. So, do you have a sailboat that needs a new sprayhood? Then, we can help you!

In addition, we can supply you with new frames for your sprayhood if you need them. We offer frames in galvanized aluminium or stainless steel.

However, we will, in most cases, recommend aluminium tubes, as these are lighter than the stainless steel type. At the same time, stainless steel tubes can mirror the sun, thereby creating "brand marks" in the window material.

Beautiful sprayhood in high quality

We value quality and design really highly. That is why we make every effort to ensure that our sprayhood is of the very best quality, and fits perfectly with your sailing boat.

It is important that a sprayhood is of high quality and made of strong material because it must handle heavy wind loads, as well as the weather, when it is in front of the boat and the screen is covered.

Even though the sprayhood is not intended as a shelter for you to can sit and relax under, we are also able to make a cockpit which can be connected to the sprayhood, so you can use more areas on your boat.

In addition to design and quality, we also see it as a natural part of our work that you, as a customer, must be fully satisfied. Therefore, we deliver sprayhoods only at competitive prices, we always comply with our agreement and we deliver the work on the agreed date.

How to make your own sprayhood or bimini as a DIY project

  • March 30, 2020

Ann Berry describes how an industrial sewing machine could save you thousands of pounds if your canvaswork is worn out and you want to make your own sprayhood or bimini.

yacht spray hood

Sun, sea and general weathering had degraded the stitching, attachment points and external canvas work on Aderyn Glas , our Moody Eclipse 33. It was time to replace it all: sprayhood, bimini and bridging piece (that joins the sprayhood and bimini together for use in port) but the cost would run into thousands!

yacht spray hood

My domestic sewing machine would not have the power or ability to handle the weight and layers of fabric required for items such as a sprayhood or bimini. An industrial machine would be required – they’re much larger, heavier and robust than domestic machines. They have a separate external motor and a metal foot treadle and are set into their own large sewing table, so do take up a lot of room. I store mine in the garage and wheel it into the house when sewing.

The industrial sewing machine has a very large throat compared to a domestic one. This is the space from the sewing needle to the upright control column, allowing for much larger volumes of material, which are also supported by the large table.

The machine I chose was a Highlead: a heavy-duty top and bottom feed lockstitch with a walking foot. A walking foot has teeth on the underside which synchronise with the teeth on the machine gripping both top and bottom layers when sewing. It feeds them evenly through the machine, and is important, for example, with sprayhoods when zips, webbing, Velcro and various edging materials are being sandwiched on or between the canvas layers.

yacht spray hood

Price was a major factor for me as industrial machines can cost thousands of pounds, even second-hand. Mine cost £500 and was manufactured in 2005 so I felt that I could do the work and even recoup some cost by selling it later if required. Some popular brands are Typical, Brother, Pfaff, Juki and Singer. Machines can be researched through ebay but your local industrial sewing machine company would be a better bet as servicing and backup would be part of the package.

The main items I needed to replace on Aderyn Glas were the dodgers, sprayhood, bimini and bridging piece (this stretches between the sprayhood and bimini to from a solid canopy over the cockpit when in port or anchored, so is fully detachable).

Cost: Sewing machine = £500. Materials for sprayhood and bimini = £534 See also Ann Berry’s article on making a boom tent cockpit cover . How much material do you need? New bimini created by Ann. The width of most canvas and other fabrics is between 140cm and 150cm. When taking measurements I estimate in metres, and cut along the length of the fabric. For example if the sprayhood is 3.5m wide across the cockpit then I would need a 3.5m length of fabric to cover the cockpit width, and as many pieces of cloth as necessary for the cockpit length. A sprayhood is typically made of several different sections: the roof, the front section with the windows, and two side panels usually with webbing straps. In a wide cockpit the width of the roof section will take up most of the width of the canvas so I would not be able to get the window section out of one piece. I’d need an additional 3.5m of fabric. I measured the canvas zip channels and Velcro channels inside the old sprayhood, which attach it to the stainless steel frame and then the side sections. On squared paper I checked that they could be cut from the spare width material left from the window or roof section. If so, 7m of canvas was required for my sprayhood; if not, I would calculate the extra length required. When I’d worked out the length and widths of all the major pieces and their component parts I added an extra metre or so to allow for any errors in measuring. Extra fabric can always be used on smaller projects around the boat, and as coloured canvas is dyed, another batch might not be the same. Edging material, Velcro, plastic lining and webbing are measured directly along their lengths and the total length added up from each major piece being made. Zips are measured exactly, as they only come in specific lengths and will need to be shortened to fit if they are too long. I always replace any plastic fittings associated with the canvas work. If the canvas stitching has degraded then they will have too.

What else can you make with an industrial sewing machine?

yacht spray hood

Investing in a machine has been very worthwhile, and though I could resell it to recoup most of the costs, I think I’ll keep it in the short term. I’m having great fun, the boat is benefiting and I’m enjoying my purchase.

The industrial sewing machine has many advantages over my lighter domestic machine. The ability to sew heavier, treated canvas, leather and a wider range of upholstery fabrics opens up a greater range of projects. Here’s what else I’ve made:

  • A canvas cover for the forepeak of Aderyn Glas . We store the dinghy under here over the winter. A simple project like that is a good way to become familiar with the industrial machine.
  • New dodgers
  • A cover for the solar panels
  • Covers for the tail of the sail and gooseneck
  • Padded seat backs for the cockpit (I plan to make new cockpit seats too)
  • A variety of canvas bags, pockets, winch covers and other things I did not even know the boat needed until I let my mind wander while enjoying the sunshine in the cockpit!
  • My husband, David, made a cover for our wooden garden seat last autumn out of the spare canvas I’d acquired.

Equipment and experience you will need before you start

To make a new sprayhood you’ll need to have had some sewing practice, experience of measuring, estimating fabric quantities and handling different materials, as they move and slip against one another.

YouTube has many tutorials, and though not necessarily marine-based, they’re still helpful.

There are lots of local sewing courses available, mainly for lightweight dress, household items and quilting, but these are the basic skills you’ll need for any sewing and are fully transferable. If you think you can do it, research it all, ask people for help, take a big breath and go for it!

If you don’t want to invest in an industrial machine, why not start with a domestic machine and take on some projects with lighter-weight fabrics. I’ve successfully made curtains, external shade and window covers, fender socks, a windscoop, re-covered the saloon cushions, and even a dinghy cover (many of these projects have been published in PBO over the years).

Materials you’ll need Double-sided tape Edging material 2m of rope channel Pack of chinagraph pencils (I got through three of them!) Length of stainless steel tubing (to check fit of tubes in sprayhood) 6m of lining plastic 14m grey canvas (covers bimini, sprayhood, bridging piece and dodgers) 2m clear plastic 10 x plastic zips: 4 x 90cm, 2 x 180cm, 2 x 45cm and 2 x 20cm Velcro: 10m x 2.5cm, loop and hook separate lengths. Metal and plastic fittings: 8 x lift-the-dot fasteners, 4 x canvas to canvas press studs, 2 x webbing strap tensioners. Polyester cotton: 1 x large spool 5,000m (plenty left for other projects) Zips, edging tapes, Velcro, thread and some of the other sundries you’ll need to make a sprayhood Suppliers Josh Brown of Severn Sails is a sailmaker and canvas work professional. I gave him a list and he sourced most of my materials. He also gave me some useful pointers and guidance before I started my projects. You can also source these yourself online via kayospruce.com . Fixtures and fittings can be bought from chandleries. Time to make I only work a few hours a day when I am sewing so I would say it took me about 16 hours (four days) for the bimini from start to finish and 20 hours (five days) for the sprayhood. I do spend a lot of time measuring and checking what I am doing at every stage so work quite slowly.

Recreating the bimini – step by step

Accurate measurement is essential. To ensure that every part of the bimini would match up I drew in permanent ink on the old canvas to identify where each element fitted but transferred marks to the new canvas with a white chinagraph pencil which would rub off later.

I used the individual pieces of the bimini, once deconstructed, to draw around and copy the image directly onto the new canvas. I took care to flatten out or straighten out each individual piece. Curved pieces when flattened out take up a greater length.

The bimini has three zipped channels, one central Velcro channel and a Velcro back flap to go around the back stay. This design also has a zip inserted along the whole front face to link to my bridging piece.

When you transfer dimensions from old to new material it’s best to work from a datum. In my case I established a centre line on each piece and worked from there.

yacht spray hood

1. Place the original bimini right side down onto the new canvas and draw around it. With a white chinagraph pencil, mark the centreline, and the position of the Velcro and zip channels and the backstay opening.

yacht spray hood

2. Remove each zip and Velcro channel from the old bimini after marking their original positions. You can then measure and compare between original and new before you sew the new ones in place. Take the detached pieces (eg, the zip, seen above) and sketch the position of the individual elements (such as the zip open and closed ends). Draw around these individual pieces on the new canvas.

yacht spray hood

3. Amazingly, all eight elements at the bottom of this photo are needed to make the rear starboard zip channel and back flap of the bimini (the original three pieces at the top). Once sewn back together (see steps below) you’ll need to repeat the process for the other two roof zip channels, and the port side flap and zip channel.

yacht spray hood

4. Edge each piece of canvas with matching grey fabric tape which will protect and neaten the raw edges of the fabric/canvas. Then use double-sided sticky tape to hold the zip in place when sewing it in. This stops adjacent layers slipping during sewing with the machine.

yacht spray hood

5. A finished zip channel. Complete all the zip channels in the same manner. Use a piece of stainless tubing (the same diameter as your bimini frame) to check the newly cut zip and Velcro sections will have sufficient width to wrap or enclose the tubes.

yacht spray hood

6. The bimini’s central Velcro channel has Velcro stitched onto the reverse and right sides to allow the canvas to curl around and encase the stainless steel frame. Draw around the canvas strips, cut them to length then stitch the Velcro in place. Here I used quilting clips to hold the Velcro while sewing.

Making the bimini backstay slot

The rear of the bimini has a hole to allow the backstay to pass through it. The canvas in this section has to be cut and Velcro is used to close the gap.

yacht spray hood

7. Measure the original and cut new pieces to form the Velcro closure.

yacht spray hood

8. Mark the centre opening on the new canvas for the backstay flap and around the hole. Cut the opening and sew a Velcro flap on to each side – hooks on the lower surface and loops on the upper.

yacht spray hood

9. Edge the backstay opening and all of the outer edges of the bimini with grey tape for neatness and strength.

How to shorten zips

Choose zips with plastic teeth, as metal will rust in a marine environment. Use the original zip to measure the exact length required, including the end tapes. For the sprayhood, if you’re making new channels, measure the length of gap in which to insert the new zip. This will be from the base of the zip to the top. Mark the final length with a pen, and where to cut.

yacht spray hood

1. These stainless steel zipper top stops are used to create the end of travel of the zip slider when done up.

yacht spray hood

2. Use pliers to squeeze the metal clips closed between the teeth on both sides of the zip.

yacht spray hood

3. Cut away the excess length of zip, above the mark (on both sides), being sure to leave a bit extra to form new tape ends for attachment to the canvas.

yacht spray hood

4. Use small pieces of plastic material to cover and reinforce the unused exposed teeth of the zip. For additional strength, over-sew the zip end two or three times and double-stitch all zips along their length.

How to make a sprayhood

My sprayhood is a three-dimensional structure fitting over a demountable stainless steel frame. Before disassembly I took lots of photographs to show how the different sections are attached, and labelled each one. The four main component parts are the roof, front window section and two side panels.

The rear section had a continuous canvas tube, with scalloped handhold gaps, into which one of the stainless bars is threaded when the sprayhood is erected each season. I wanted to replace this with zipped channels so the stainless frame did not need to be dismantled to take the sprayhood off – but at the same time I wanted to retain the handholds.

yacht spray hood

1. The original sprayhood showing the port side panel, with webbing straps, joined onto the roof and window panels, prior to deconstruction. You can see the UV damage to the torn zip.

yacht spray hood

2. Lay the old roof, right sides together, onto the new canvas and draw around the entire shape. Transfer all channels, zips and handhold positions to the new canvas, allowing for a 5mm seam. Repeat for the front window panel and the two side panels.

yacht spray hood

3. To make the new zip channels I drew around the originals on the rear of the new sprayhood roof. I cut off the flaps to form the patterns for the separate zip channels, then cut along the centre length of each flap to form a pattern for the new zip opening.

yacht spray hood

4. These are the component parts that form the central zip channel and there’s a similar set for each of the two smaller curved channels.

yacht spray hood

5. The two smaller side zip channels, ready to sew back onto the new roof section.

yacht spray hood

6. The rear of the roof section with the bridging piece zips inserted and the central zip channel attached. The handhold gaps have also been edged.

Fitting the windows

Fitting the plastic window panel into the canvas is tricky, as both materials are slippery and the window can easily become distorted when stitching.

To overcome this, place the old, intact window panel over the new plastic sheet and draw around the outer edge before cutting it out.

Now lay the new plastic window directly onto the underside, or wrong side, of the new, uncut canvas panel. Use double-sided tape to hold it in place while you sew them together.

Only carefully cut out the canvas aperture once the plastic is in place.

yacht spray hood

1. Sew the new window onto the reverse side of the panel. It’ll help with the next step to first cut a small guide hole in the centre of each window panel.

yacht spray hood

2. Having marked the window aperture (allowing for a seam), the small hole now gives access to cut around the canvas to reveal the window underneath.

yacht spray hood

3. Cut small nicks in the canvas around all the curves in the windows then fold the material back underneath to form a neat edge. Hold the fabric flat against the plastic.

yacht spray hood

4. Sew around the whole of the window sections, from the front, to firmly attach the plastic into the window cut outs. I used quilting clips to hold the backfolded edge in place while machining.

yacht spray hood

5. I lined the front lower edges of the sprayhood with plastic material to prevent wear to the canvas from rubbing on the coachroof, then attached the new webbing strips (not forgetting to incorporate the clips before sewing).

yacht spray hood

6. Here are the four sections of the sprayhood prior to being joined back into one three dimensional structure.

7. Sew the sections, right sides together, with a single seam, and then over-sew a second layer of stitching on the right (or outside) of the canvas for additional strength.

8. The final sewing task is to secure the prefabricated bolt rope tape into the base and sides of the front window panel. The bolt rope slides into a permanent plastic fitting on the coachroof and holds the sprayhood down at the front of the cockpit.

9. Reassemble the sprayhood on the boat before making a hole for the mainsheet. A laser pointer from the pulley block to the winch accurately positions it.

Sprayhood – bimini bridge

To cover the gap between the sprayhood and bimini when we are not sailing we have a bridging piece, which is attached with zips.

My detachable bridging piece joins to the sprayhood by the three front zips (the gaps are where the sprayhood handhold are) and then to the bimini by the one long rear zip

  • Sprayhoods and Covers

Sprayhoods, Covers and Canopies

We pride ourselves in making well fitting covers. These are usually always given personal attention on board. We will visit your yacht to measure up or take a pattern to ensure a perfect fit, then revisit to install the cover on board.

Our covers are manufactured in acrylic canvas for Sprayhoods, sail covers and spray dodgers. For winter covers and larger heavy duty boat covers Topgun a durable polyester fabric is used.

About our Sprayhoods


The frames can be jointed for ease of stowing. The frames are set up to the desired shape and patterned over, to produce a polythene duplicate of what is required. This means that you can see the hood and or enclosure before it’s made up in the fabric and make sure that windows and doors etc are where they are best suited for your use on board.

We then return to the boat to install the covers, to align fasteners and correctly tension the hood.

Winter Covers, Sail Covers and Dodgers


Winter covers are usually made to measure, fitted once for rig slots, mooring line access, doors and areas of chafe reinforced. We return to install finally ensuring the boats well wrapped up for the winter.

Sail Covers and Dodgers

Sail covers and dodgers are made out of a breathable acrylic canvas, allowing the sail to breathe when under cover. Coated fabrics are not used for this application as they can encourage mildew and rub off. Coated fabrics are only used where maximum water resistance is required.

Please remember that we also valet and reproof all types of covers as part of our valeting service. Regular valeting will ensure your covers are checked and prepared for the coming seasons giving you the maximum life out of your investment.

All our covers carry a three year guarantee against failure in materials and workmanship.

Spray Hood - Up or Down?

  • Thread starter BlueSkyNick

Active member.

We seem to be in the minority in that we keep the hood folded down all the time we are on the boat, except for 2 occasions this summer. The first was while in the marina to keep a short spell of rain out of the cabin with the hatch open for ventilation. The second was because we had no option but to motorsail into a F4 but with the tide. (won't bore you with the details) All the rest of the time we prefer to keep the hood down, mainly because 1. it is easier to communicate whilst coming alongside or leaving the pontoon, marina lock, picking up a mooring, or anchoring. 2. We enjoy the feeling of the wind when we are sailing, rather than hiding away - its all part of the reason for going sailing. 3. It is easier to see where we are going, particularly in confined spaces, and SWMBO's only little. 4. Being of larger than normal dimensions, I find it easier to get up and down the companionway steps. So I don't understand why most other boats are sailing around with their hoods up in light winds, and under sunny skies. Is it me? <hr width=100% size=1>Have a holiday on The Broads? Norfolk Enchants !!  

Can I vote for DOWN! Actually, we don't have one at all. I actually ordered one, and paid for it, but what with one thing and another it never got made and after a couple of years I cancelled the order! There is one point that I would like to add - if the sprayhood is up, it reverses the normal flow of ventilation in the cabin - not normally a problem, but don't try to light a stove, or a cabin heater, at sea with the sprayhood up - the cabin is an area of relative low pressure with the hood up and it will fill with smoke that should have gone out of the flue! Lying at anchor (in normal type places!) we have come close to being sideswiped several times by boats motoring with the hood up and I am sure this is most people's experience! <hr width=100% size=1>  


Re: Can I vote for DOWN! We sail with ours up on hot sunny days because it provides a bit of shelter from the sun. We only tend to drop it when coming alongside for reasons of visibilty or to reduce windage. <hr width=100% size=1>  


Re: Can I vote for DOWN! A friend with a new-ish boat won't put the hood down for fear of creating hard spots and ultimately cracks in the window. I'm taller than him and still need to stand on the locker to see over the thing. When I see him coming, I get out of the way. <hr width=100% size=1>  


Not down, gone! We took the spray hood off the boat when we bought it - was rotten anyway. I prefer the cleaner look of the boat, and the fact that I can now sit in the cockpit and see along the boat and ahead clearly. Jeff. <hr width=100% size=1>  


Up for cruising, down for racing and coming alongside <hr width=100% size=1>  


Well-known member

verdict... 1 sprayhood bad, no sprayhood good! Now how's that for a bit of yottie snobbishness; the sprayhoodbeclad yobbo doesn't even know he should feel inferior as you zoom past, the wind tousling your hair! P.S. no sprayhood on my boat, no siree! <hr width=100% size=1><A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.comoy.com/saillinks.html>http://www.comoy.com/saillinks.html</A>  


I keep mine up all the time except when mooring up in strong wind. If sailing downwind then the extra windage can only help and if upwind, when it does adversely affect sailng performance, quite frankly I'd rather have the shelter. Never found it a hindrance to communication and stops you faliing down the hatch when zipping up the stac pac cover! <hr width=100% size=1>  


This weekend was fairly typical. Hood up to windward or raining, down off the wind. Down if SWMBO is helming in a tight spot (she can't see over the top), always up in port. Stowing the main is easier with it down but I don't always bother. I prefer the look of the boat with the hood down and can then see what looks like acres of uncluttered teak (just threw this in for snob value as we don't have a blue ensign). <hr width=100% size=1>  



Up Up, unless hotnsunny. <hr width=100% size=1><A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.writeforweb.com/twister1>Let's Twist Again</A>  


I bet if you look back 20-30 years in the yotti press you'll find exactly the same sentiments expressed over dodgers, and even guardrails. Personally I wouldn't entertain a sprayhood as it spoile the lines of the boat and probably makes her sail much worse, but I wouldn't give up my dodgers, which are nearly as bad, doubling the freeboard as they do. <hr width=100% size=1>  

We have ours down most of the time in the Solent for reasons of visibility. If you ever see us coming towards you with it up then I would advise you to get out of the way since the chances are we can't see you. The two occasions it is essential are when it's raining - to enable us to keep the hatch open without getting too much water in the saloon - and when going to windward in heavy seas when it provides some protection from the odd wave that comes over the top <hr width=100% size=1>  

Re: verdict... Never realised we were snobs, besides, to make what remains of my hair flow in the breeze reqires a veritable gale /forums/images/icons/smile.gif. Jeff. <hr width=100% size=1>  

Dodgers, now there's something I can't abide. <hr width=100% size=1><A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.writeforweb.com/twister1>Let's Twist Again</A>  

Re: dodgers Ken, are you're sure you're not confusing the little bits of canvas with the name of the boat on with the tight sods who never pay for their round? <hr width=100% size=1>  


What you need is a deck sweeping genoa and a nice pair of dodgers ,then you cant see to windward or to leeward.But at least your hairdo wont get ruffled. <hr width=100% size=1>  


here,here. it seems that if u have the hood up u must have your fenders down. or is it the new fashion or people new to boating or perhaps from the norfolk broads <hr width=100% size=1>  

if u also have the rubber-dubber "inflated" up the transon/backstay that keeps the wind out of your neck & u can hide from everybody <hr width=100% size=1>  



Always down unless Moored up to keep the weather off the hatch or beating into a load of crap. <hr width=100% size=1>

Strange Glow Over Moscow Skies Triggers Panic as Explosions Reported

B right flashes lit up the night sky in southern Moscow in the early hours of Thursday morning, new footage appears to show, following reports of an explosion at an electrical substation on the outskirts of the city.

Video snippets circulating on Russian-language Telegram channels show a series of flashes on the horizon of a cloudy night sky, momentarily turning the sky a number of different colors. In a clip shared by Russian outlet MSK1.ru, smoke can be seen rising from a building during the flashes lighting up the scene.

Newsweek was unable to independently verify the details of the video clips, including when and where it was filmed. The Russian Ministry of Emergency situations has been contacted via email.

Several Russian Telegram accounts said early on Thursday that residents of southern Moscow reported an explosion and a fire breaking out at an electrical substation in the Leninsky district, southeast of central Moscow.

Local authorities in the Leninsky district told Russian outlet RBC that the explosion had happened in the village of Molokovo. "All vital facilities are operating as normal," Leninsky district officials told the outlet.

The incident at the substation in Molokovo took place just before 2 a.m. local time, MSK1.ru reported.

Messages published by the ASTRA Telegram account, run by independent Russian journalists, appear to show residents close to the substation panicking as they question the bright flashes in the sky. One local resident describes seeing the bright light before losing access to electricity, with another calling the incident a "nightmare."

More than 10 villages and towns in the southeast of Moscow lost access to electricity, the ASTRA Telegram account also reported. The town of Lytkarino to the southeast of Moscow, lost electricity, wrote the eastern European-based independent outlet, Meduza.

Outages were reported in the southern Domodedovo area of the city, according to another Russian outlet, as well as power failures in western Moscow. Electricity was then restored to the areas, the Strana.ua outlet reported.

The cause of the reported explosion is not known. A Telegram account aggregating news for the Lytkarino area described the incident as "an ordinary accident at a substation."

The MSK1.ru outlet quoted a local resident who speculated that a drone may have been responsible for the explosion, but no other Russian source reported this as a possible cause.

Ukraine has repeatedly targeted Moscow with long-range aerial drones in recent months, including a dramatic wave of strikes in late May.

On Sunday, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said the region's air defense systems had intercepted an aerial drone over the city of Elektrostal, to the east of Moscow. No damage or casualties were reported, he said.

The previous day, Russian air defenses detected and shot down another drone flying over the Bogorodsky district, northeast of central Moscow, Sobyanin said.

There is currently no evidence that an aerial drone was responsible for the reported overnight explosion at the electrical substation in southern Moscow.
