Keeping dry on the stern

The bad news is that Derwent6 won't be going in the water this weekend or next weekend, but the good news is that the stove has turned up and things are still moving forward.

We were looking at ways of keeping dry on the stern of Derwent6 without having one of those pram covers which have to be taken down every time you go under a bridge. We know they are good for storage and keep the complete back of the boat dry but are a pain to put up and down and store if removed.
So we have come up with this idea..............



Yes you do look a bit of a knob wearing it, but that is what you do. It is strapped to you using shoulder straps, leaving your hands free, and is also wind and gale proof. You just need to duck to get under the bridges and can even walk around with it attached to do the lock gates.

When folded it can be stored very easily in the engine room

Do you get a dummy and a rattle with it?!! It looks a good idea but if you,re both on the stern it could be a hazzard.
