Some of the new boats can be ordered with cove covers. I saw one a few weeks ago and the owners guests were crawling in and out of the boat. (actually hands and knees) I thought it was a cool idea but there has to be a better way. This is my best attempt at sewing (first time ever) You can walk under . Wind will blow it down a little. I have already built another for a friend. It dose fold up and goes in a bag about 18" long 2 1/2 round
1/2 inch copper tubing zip tied to tower. Receiver stays on the tower.
Old tent poles I think I added 5 sections to make it really long
4 yards of flag material rip stop type $38.00 bucks
A few tent clips off a old tent 10 I think and a rope ratchet 4 for 10
rain fly bungee and hooks
The frame tent poles (old tent)
Pin the fabric template. just some tyvec I marked where the tent pole was and carefully slid it out then shrunk that line by 2 inches each side. or all the way around.
Pin all the tent clips where I wanted them. After shrink the template. went and cut the flag material. started sewing
Breaks down into a small bag
The Receivers made from a Kreg tract and some round tubing. some 1/4 20 bolts and we should be good to go.
Finally got the receivers painted and on.
