Would love some feedback & ideas for a shade tarp.
We are about to launch into what will be one of our busiest seasons in 27 years and I am looking to add a few items to this seasons river gear.
1. Shade options for Sunny beaches & campsights. (we have a lot of beaches on the Salmon & almost none on the Snake) We do have large tarps that are held up by oars etc. These are mostl heavier duty tarps for rain and are just cumbersome when all you need is a tarp just for shade.
Are there any options or makers of mesh style tarps that provide good shade? Looking in the range of 20'x20' ish. Do you know anyone that would build one to our specifications?
2. Looking for a light weight and compact system for rain/shade for lunch while on the water. something in the range of 10'x10'. I am not a fan of those metal frame pop-up canopies as they are very heavy and take up more room than a body. Something that can be easily carried on a raft and take a few min to set-up. Used during rain and later in the season for some shade.
Thanks a bunch and safe boating in 08.
Thanks for the visual. Makes even more sense now. Now I have a question for the "Tarp Master"? BusteronBuffalo New
