Hard Dodger Designs

When out boating, we often see other sailboats with "hard" dodgers around the cockpit (as opposed to soft canvas dodgers). However, as most dodgers are an add-on, after the boat has been built, their designs tend to be more functional than aesthetic causing things to look a bit weird.

So I started playing with some designs trying to match some angles and proportions of the Westsail's cabin trunk. I am trying to get something that looks like it belongs on a Westsail 42, but I ain't no designer. This is of course a work in progress. Any questions/comments/ideas/suggestions appreciated.
