I wanted a place to put bungee cords at the base of the mast that I use to tie off the halyards so they don't slap. I found a black nylon tool pouch at the Home Depot that worked perfectly. I just put a large black wire tie around the mast and through the belt loop. About $10 as I recall.

My Bimini top was completely shot. I bought a 6' x 8' heavy duty grey tarp from McMaster Carr for $9. I slit it around the backstay and reinforced the cut with grey tarp repair tape they also sold. Everyone is surprised at how well it looks, they don't realize it is a cheap tarp until I tell them. It is still servicable after a year, and I'll continue to use it until I get a round Tuit and make a new top.
