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 plan on buying one of these:
Taylor Made Anchorshade III - 6' x 6'
Taylor Made Anchorshade III - 6' x 6'
Size: 6 Feet x 6 Feet, Maximum Height: 8 Feet, Includes Straps

It will be around $100 in the spring when Defender has their big sale. I will use the main halyard to get it above the boom. The tie down straps are adjustable so I can find somewhere to tie them too.

I tried a beach umbrella but I couldn't mount it well. I tried a tarp type thing but it didn't work well. I will probably use this 5 times a year so I will chance $100 on it.
