    I'm looking to build a cockpit awning for sun shade. Looking for examples of what fellow Posty's have found for this application. I want to do something that runs straight aft from the bridge deck possibly with supports in the rod holders to frame it up. Thanks

    Not a Post but I thought I would show you what I did on my Everglades. It was about 1200 with 2 carbon fiber poles and the “tarp”. Very easy to set up and take down and stow. I don’t use it underway. I don’t think it would hold up. B4E67712-8E09-4EBF-BD63-0CA91A5E0FFD.jpeg

    That's just what have in mind, probably with snaps to make it a continuous attachment at the front and to shed rain

    A San Juan sunshade is the best all around style. Fixed aluminum frame off the back of the hardtop. In the tropics S/F will have it extend to the transom and hinged to fold in the center for fishing. google it

    I use a sunshade for when I'm out at anchor or anytime it's hot out. Telescoping poles and 12X16 sail shade. Both from Amazon. Takes about 2 minutes to set up...

    Does that shed water reasonably well? Not looking for totally waterproof like a tarp but some rain shelter is good

    If you're directing your question to me, the poles break down with elastic cordage inside. I simply fold up the sail shade and put aways with the poles under the bench seat on the bridge. I keep a few small bungies which I use to tie the sail shade "D" rings to how I like them, to the half tower. Similar to these. https://www.amazon.com/Adjustable-T...fix=telescoping+aluminum+poles,aps,53&sr=8-50

    In my application on the 23’ the carbon fiber poles store in a rod holder. The “tarp” folds up and stores in storage area. Very easy to set up, break down, & stow.
