Did a little playing around with an old brush and some old paint. I painted the brown and splattered the black.

Kinda hard to mess up camp paint. Unless you're trying to be fancy.

On a 22 or 23 foot boat you would barely be able to tell the difference. We shall see. If it for some reason it is too top heavy, for the cost of 1 chainsaw blade I can cut that top off in about 10 minutes. I aint scared to try, I aint scared to fail. I am only scared of not trying because of fear.

If the tin top turns out to be too heavy, you can add a few additional struts and cover in canvas

I reckon it is about 7 foot center toon to center toon. I will see tonight. R panels are 36 inches. So two of them is 72 plus a 26 inch door plus gaps is 96 inches at least from side to side. Not that I type this I think I remember is is 8 foot across the beam.

Considering the combined weight of the chosen crew on that boat going to the coast in January, the weight added by the tin is the least of his worries.

Seriously, the problem I predict will be in strong wind. It may act as a big fixed sail.
