California Dodger Skin Kit for 2-Bow Frame - Sunbrella® Premium Color
Sew it yourself! This California Dodger Skin Kit for a 2-Bow Frame contains all the materials needed to sew the fabric portion of a California dodger, including 46-inch-wide Sunbrella® Marine Grade Fabric in a premium color. Skin kits can be used to replace the fabric on an existing dodger frame or can be paired with our 2-Bow Dodger Frame Kit (#121918) to create a new, custom California dodger from start to finish. Dodgers, also known as sprayhoods, provide protection from the sun and offer shelter from rain and spray.
California dodgers differ from traditional dodgers in two main ways:
- The side windows on a California dodger are larger than those on a traditional dodger.
- The front and side windows on a California dodger are removable; only the front window on a traditional dodger is removable.
The Sailrite® California Dodger Skin Kit with Sunbrella premium-color fabric is intended to be used with frames that use rigid support struts (included in our Dodger Frame Kit). Webbing and webbing strap hardware are not included.
Making your own custom California dodger skin is easy! This kit includes all the necessary materials, such as:
- Sunbrella® Marine Grade Fabric
- Lenzip® zippers
- Sunbrella® acrylic binding
- Strataglass™ 30 gauge clear vinyl window material
- DOT® Twist-Lock Fasteners and Snap Fasteners
- And more!
California Dodger Skin Kits do not include frames, fittings and rigid supports; those are sold separately or as a complete set in our 2-Bow Dodger Frame Kit (#121918).
This kit will accommodate a maximum frame width of 84 inches and a nominal height of 40 inches at its maximum spread with a maximum length fore and aft of up to 70 inches (includes the front window panel to the deck).
