Cockpit tent

Just looking for ideas or possibly companies who sell them. I really don't want to go with a bimini due to cost and it getting in the way plus a height issue. I have searched Google images and see a lot of different designs including PVC framing that bend over the boom. I know there will be times where I anchor and sit and play in my kayaks all day but would love to have a tent over the cockpit to get out of the sun at least some of the time. The picture attached is a sweet design but looking for any others and any that are able to be purchased.

I like the idea of a hardware store tarp. I would likely go with a Harbor Freight white one. Not quite as unsightly as a blue one and cooler. They are cheap enough that you can experiment with it. Once you get it the way you like it you can use it as a template with sunbreala or the like.

Wonder why there is no boom on that boat? Maybe because they don't sail it?
Yea, thought that was odd, as there seems to be a jib hanked on.
