This cover works very well as both a sun shade and as a way that we can keep the forward hatch open even during heavy rains.
I made it from a light canvas fabric that I purchased at a Joann’s Fabrics in Gainesville, FL. It was easy to sew up and I made it just slightly smaller than the rails on the boat. I purchased the nylon webbing and buckles again at Joann’s. All seams are double stitched.
I always take it down when we are underway and store it in an aft locker.
