I also vote for a foredeck cover / sunshade.
But FWIW, my boat came with 2 aft cockpit
covers (UK style - not US full enclosures) - and neither of them fitted! (very close though!). I was aware before the sale
. Likely reason was pre-current Vendor that the Sprayhood / Dodger
had changed, or the covers came off a sistership following an upgrade.
I mention it simply because boats sometimes acquire "stuff" that has no clear reason.....
