Everything you buy should have the ability to be put to multiple uses.
I’ve recently been intrigued by hammock camping and found myself the perfect small shelter. It keeps off the rain and weather and also provides shade. After use, it rolls up small enough to fit in my bug-out bag. It’s the perfect, easy overnight plan for use when travelling by bike or car. Quick and easy to set up it rolls away to a minimal size and weight for storage in your pack.
In keeping with the multi-purpose, multi-use theme, here it is, pressed into service on board O’Blue to keep the hot afternoon sun from baking the interior of the boat.
The fact that it perfectly matches the colour of the harbour water today is just an added bonus.
