Port side, further aft. The dodger is quite tall, and makes for a very roomy and protected cockpit. The bimini can be detached if you want a sunny cockpit. There are stainless grab rails along each side of the dodger. For further weather protection, the dodger cloth can drop down vertically from just aft of the grab rail to the coaming near the primary winches. I usually keep this section rolled up (you can just barely make out the ties by the diagonal brace). The dodger color is "Sunbrella Toast". It was made by Chris Ford in Annapolis, who did a very good job. There are blue line bags, each with two compartments, on the lifelines near the cockpit. These hold the tails for the headsail sheets.
