Does it matter if you're dry?

30 knots of wind is quite a lot for a tent to stand up to while it's being bounced about and lots of water hitting it.

I agree with you but I can make many canopy bows and the problem can be solved.

I would of thought the ony design that would stay up whilst moving would be a geodesic pole type.

The crossing of the poles create a very stable structure that can withstand very high wind speeds if anchored down well.

eg.

Hi What you need is one of these

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BRAND-NEW-QUEC...QQcmdZViewItem

I bought one last year and its pretty good, takes 2 seconds to put up, has no rigid poles and stays up without being pegged down, to keep it on the deck you could secure a couple of straps across somehow, then in the morning it takes 2 seconds to fold it down and re bag it

Would suggest the two man one unless you have a really big deck area.

Olympus do them for about 24 so if it gets wrecked its not the end of the world.

Well! Well! Well! It's http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BRAND-NEW-QUEC...QQcmdZViewItem very good for me to sleep night. But I think It's difficult for me to control rib being there.

Made this kind of roof/cabin myself to stay dry at lunch time. Stands up to about 50km/hr. Folds down with it's alu frame and RVS hinges, for speeds up to 98 km/hr.
We sleep under the front deck. We make lots of trips, sailing, sleeping, eating, etc. this way.

Sorry your original post said you wanted to design a tent for your boat, this implies your looking to sleep in/on it over night, assuming your not under power ! what your now saying is that you want a bimini or some other contraption to keep you dry while your going along !

As someone else has said, if you wana stay warm and dry why did you buy a rib, surely the whole concept is the wind in your face thing in a rugged go anywhere boat, not some namby pamby cabin jobby

Ok i'm going back to my knitting now i've had my say
