I park my boat under a 12 x 30 foot canopy. Basic tube frame with tarp cover. The tarps are good for about 3 or 4 years. Problem is, I no longer remember who I originally ordered it from. I can buy new tarps from an outfit called Shelter Logic but they fit a little loose so they sag and some water pools. I can't for the life of me find any other manufacturers and I know they have to be out there.

Anyone have any suggestions?

When I did this, I got a custom one made by a company that makes the mesh tarps that go over tractor trailers to prevent rocks from flying out. You can get a pretty tight mesh that blocks over 90% of the light. They are ridiculously strong and last forever. I was tired of having to replace them and worry when the wind blew.

I dont remember where I got mine but check this:


Most places will send samples of the fabric. I think I ended going with a trampoline mesh which is, well, the stuff you would find on a trampoline.
