Re: Ideas for cockpit shade

You need to have something in the way of side curtains if you are to avoid the afternoon sun. We did rig up such an arrangement on our girl and they work not only in keeping out the afternoon sun but also driving rain at anchor.

(I'll try and posts some pics later on)

There is also a pretty remarkable boat cover in the latest edition of Good Old Boat.
