Let me tell you what I did and it worked grrrrrrreat!
I bought two galvanized battery terminal ends and spanned clear pex tubing with one of them on each end. I sewed a dodger of canvas in a lemon wedge shape, threaded the pex through it, then bent it in a semi-circle from one end of the cockpit to the other (shoulder to shoulder) and then attached the other edge of the fabric with a bungee. If you don't screw the terminals in too tight, you can lift and lower the dodger, very low tech, cheap, durable, good looking and effective....
