This is a little invention I came up with for the same problem.....forget fabricating one, do it yourself...
You know what battery cable, terminal ends look like? Get two of those..get some Pex plumbing tube and put one terminal on each end secured with SS Screws....bend it in an arch in the desired place on the combing of the boat and screw it through so now it's an arch over the cockpit....add a "lemon wedge" cut of canvas to it by sewing it over the pex and then attach it to the combing as you see fit.
You will have a flexible, retractable dodger in no time
