We’ve probably got ugliest boom tent of the entire Baltic Sea and today was the day to show it to the world. Fortunately, Sina is also in the picture to even out the bad look of the tent.
The upcoming thunderstorm seemed the perfect occasion to try our tent. We’ve bought a 3×4 meter canvas cover from a hardware store as well as 10 meters of rubber-rope and 6 carabiner to fix it to the boat. Building the “tent” was fast, easy and cheap but I didn’t dare to take a picture from the outside.
Even the Seagull rather passed by with a weird look than joining us in our cosy but ugly home.
The tent fulfilled his task superbly. We’ve had a cosy and dry thunderstorm. Proof of concept was successful. We had to take the tent down next day though, after sleeping with earplugs. The constant noise of a canvas cover chattering in the wind was too much annoyance.
