A coffee filter or piece of cheese cloth will not hold up for more then a minute with a heavy down pour. With the first filter you're really looking to filter out leaves, or large bugs and the like. A nylon window screen will serve this purpose. You can even double the screen up and make it catch even smaller items.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
