saw this at the Southampton Boat Show - go me wondering if they could be adapted for a rib.

Habitent M-NS --- Habitent - Adjustable Cockpit Enclosures

Although my boat is only 4.7m - there is enough length on the bow to lie flat - already has full cushions - so all thats needed is a cover

Yes, did a whole weekend "camping" on the boat a couple of weeks ago at Catalina Island (please excuse the poor picture quality of the picture stolen from the girlfriends instagram feed).

Aluminum tent poles, $17 Harbor Freight Tarp, $4 grommet kit, and some bungee cords.

Friday night there was a "rave" going on. Too much techno music (until 2A) and not enough Dramamine (taken specifically to sleep better). Saturday at the bar, the mixing of 30 cowboys with the young hippie raver crowd priceless (attached pic #1, one of the cowboys convinced her to wear his chaps). Saturday night we moved to Cherry Cove to sleep better (the sound didn't travel around the corner) and we got put on A17. Small craft advisory Saturday night due to heavy NW winds and we were on the most exposed mooring of the cove! ...slept better due to the quiet but when nature called at 3A and there was a full moon and whitewater breaking 7m off the transom on the cliffs, it was quite disconcerting and a site to see. Morning coffee made on the camp stove (attached picture #2).

All in all, a great weekend. The water is still warm (~67) and we got a good hike in and some pub time.

I do sleep aboard under a tent I made - sort of up market version of ncp's. However there is not enough space between the console and tubes to make fore and aft berths tenable, so I sleep athwartships across the aft bench seats.

The longer I stay aboard the more comfortable it seems. Five consecutive nights is the longest, cut short because I run out of fresh food by then.
