The easiest, simplest way is to run a rope from a point on you bow to the cetre of the top of your windscreen. Then to drape a tarpaulin over it, fastening it down at the sides to your grab-handles and side ropes.
Not enough to sleep under, but it sure would keep (most of) the water out.

100 experts will now tell you why this is completely wrong/wont work!!

Of course it won't work - everyone knows you need to hammer the tent pegs into the tubes....

Of course it's the good idea but... I wonder whether the wether
will weather the weather or whether the weather the wether will kill!
How about a rainy day? I would hate to be wet!

Would a tent stand up to the wind when moving fast? I think you may need a big windscreen.

What you need is a tunnel type - or even something solid - shaped a bit like a roofbox on a car.

Or what about a roof tent?

Strap it to the deck.

Roof tent looked like tunnel tube is very good idea! But I think my boat will be like sausage or hot dog
