Our Super Sunshade

17 September 2009 | San Diego
Amber
This post may be interesting to other boaters.
We finally perfected our sunshade design.
It is a 10x12 seamed piece of Navy Sunbrella. ($200 for the material, $150 for the professional sewing)
We have 4 11foot lengths of 1" PVC crossing it ($11) - supported by the boom, tucked into sewn pockets. Grommets with bungees keep it in place.
We inserted 4 feet of 3/4' wood dowels ($5) into the middles of each length of PVC to prevent the PVC from warping and sagging into a TeePee.
So far its working!!!
