I thought I would post pictures of the UST Hex Tarp... at Big Satan Creek, Slaughter Bend, Devils River, Texas.
Idea from Mechanicmike69, thank you.

The tarps work perfectly... lightweight and durable...

Below is at Medina Lake.

Take care,

That's a nice setup.
Where do you run the main sheet on the roll bar when sailing ?
You know your boat needs to be registered right ?
Give me a shout if you come over to lake Travis sometime. I haven't been to Canyon in a long time but seem to remember the water being really cold. Looks beautiful though.

Thank you, Chris.
To answer your questions:

I run the main sail line through the middle of the roll bar... it rubs a little sometimes on the inside of the PVC, but no problems so far... as for the tarp, sometimes we just use the mail sail line for the tarp, or just tie the tarp lines from the roll bar to the sail using a climbing strap around the sail.

As for registration, Nauti Dog got her tags this Spring…

We are usually found in Port O'Conner, Medina Lake and the Medina River with kayaks, it has been a while since we have been to Lake Travis... we might join the Paddle for Puppies next month.

Take care, Sir.

Thanks for the info.
I may need to make a roll bar for the sheet as you did for times when my wife is in the back seat and I really like the tarp for getting out of the sun for a while.
