Howdy. Hoping anybody here can give some opinions/criticism or advice.
Wondering about a kite-like skeleton of wood, then fit with a canvas
or sunbrella to function as a rain tent. Instead of the classic boom tent strung atop the when the sail is down, the idea is to suspend this structure beneath the (wooden) boom, by rigging
it onto various point along the run of the boom. By the rigging
it would be removable and collapsable/stowable.
The point is to allow rain cover in the cockpit
, while the main is hoisted for sailing, PNW...
Assuming cleareance for moderate reaches, but generally acknowledging that points of sail would be limited by the precarious nature of this proposed piece, and that real wild winds (often the kin of rain) may be unacceptable- What do you think?!?
