Chasing a Sailing Dream

Building My Stern Rails

Circle shade

Circle shade on my sailboat for the ridiculously hot weather. I want to make it semi permanent but removable in bad weather.

I’m playing with this today. Made out of conduit pipe. Who knows. I have some ideas for how to develop it. I don’t give a crap about looking rich. I’m poor and resourceful. I’m having fun being creative.

The circle shape seems simple and efficiently useful. It even may be seen as thoughtful and shabby elegant. My goal is to start with rough ideas and refine them as I go.
