Well I packed up and headed for the marina this afternoon. I spent the morning running around town gathering cleaners and buffing pads. When I left it was 19 degrees. By lunch time the temperature had broke freezing we are at about 34. Figured I'd get a jump on cleaning the hull. After getting to the marina and untarping the boat, I went to get water. The marina understandably has not turned it on yet but I was hoping. So plan B work on the boom tent.
I started by sizing the tent poles and clipping them to size.
Then I spread the canvas over the boom just to get a look at things. The final plan the canvas will be below the boom and it will be a free standing structure.
Here is a view from the inside. After a few minutes it started to get warm inside. Which confirms my suspicions. This tent will need some screening for ventilation especially once summer arrives.
I even got a chance to test out the water proofing. The canvas beads up really nicely. Back to the sewing machine soon.
