What I did was primarily a real good sun awning that could be used for rain catching as an added benefit. I dont think I have any photos left of it, but it was simple. The sleeve was made by taking sunbrella and putting it around the size hose you expect to use, and sewing right up next to the hose(as snug as you can). Turn the sleeve outside in(the seam you just sewed goes on the inside), cut a hole in the awning and sew the sleeve in. I think the sleeve was made with the selvage edge at the end that hung down, so that it didnt unravel in the wind
. Sew a piece of small (1/8) nylon about 6 or 8 inches long so that you can snug up the sleeve when you put the hose in. The placement of the sleeve is important, in that you dont want it right at your dodger
or some place that makes it awkward. If I remember correctly I put it about 1/3 of the way from the edge to the awning peak. I also put a loop of small rope
near it , so I could tie that area down to form a low point, and , so that the wind
didnt just shake the water off of the awning. Making the awning was time consuming since I hand sewed a bolt rope
around the whole thing, and up the center, but I would not have enjoyed the tropics at all without it. I hope my verbal explanation makes sense to you.____Grant.
