So many views, so little discussion. I’m tired of cooking in summer.


Will it fold/buckle under a cross wind, or am I going over?
How easy to deploy and take down?
If I loosen those rear strings can I sail back in with afternoon sea breeze?

Wondering how much it would get in the way of casting. I like the idea of having shade, but would also want to make sure I did not have to battle the wind to get back to the launch

This is like the tent pole construction where bungee connects sections, breaks down and comes with a neat storage bag. I think casting would be the only style of fishing that would not be suited for this at least with the way that I cast and retrieve. This would be awesome in cooking Baja heat, only not recommended in high winds. I will try and get some real use and report back.

I like it, don't think it would really get in the way of casting unless you're going for distance.
