Foldable Sun protection systems

I found that this sailor in Rome has installed the ultimate ingenious sun protection system on his boat.
No bimini, spray hood or whatsoever installation.
Just buy two standard house window foldable sunscreens in the color coordinated with your boat and affix it to both sides of the boom. You even get the cranking tool for folding and unfolding.
Just don't unfold when sailing 😀.

Foldable Sun protection systems

Love it! So simple. I also have a Jeanneau with no backstay. I can see an easily positioned similar setup extending to the rear of my boom to allow more cover over the cockpit. The shade in the pic keeps the cabin cool and some of the forward cockpit.
