OtterGreen is on a distinguished road
i had an old shade canopy that had ripped mosquito netting. i cut the netting off and saved the canopy which is like a heavy tent fly and held open with collapsable tent poles. i hoist up to the desired height via the halyard and lash the 4 corners. ive used it quite a bit from hot days at anchor to downpours while anchored overnight. works great for me!
