DIY windscoop

I am looking for plans to sew up a windscoop. My previous boat had forward facing hatches and would catch the wind like crazy, making it so nice and breezy below decks. The new boat has aft facing hatches and it would take a master carpenter to reverse them (and I am led to believe it is more seaworthy this way) but I fear it will be stuffy inside while at anchor.

Does anyone have plans to see a decent windscoop? Thank you!

No idea if it works.

Many seem more suited to keeping rain out of forward facing hatches.

Anchor or moor up from the stern.

Re: DIY windscoop

You should be able to reverse engineer this design, or just buy it if youíre not set on DIY.
