I'd wanted to have a cover for my cockpit for times when my boat will be docked or parked outside for a few days, such as the case at this year's Gathering. But I didn't want to put snaps all over my woodwork. The solution I came up with was a cover that is tethered to each of my docking cleats and held taut with fiberglass tent poles. This was my first sewing project and the stitching is not so straight, but the cover is very functional.

Great idea! An idea to be copied for sure.

Definitely going to look at copying that!
I think I have some spare tent poles laying around...
Nothing says poor craftsmanship like wrinkles in your duct tape!
