THROW SOME SHADE
Among the many virtues of cruising cats is the large expanse of netting between their bows, which is the ideal place to hang out with a cold one after a hard day’s sailing and let the breeze blow your worries away. Only trouble is it can get a bit hot up there without any shade, which is why the ATN Multi Awning looks like an ideal accessory. It’s made from 9ozTopNotch fabric which carries an 8-year warranty and is available in 13 colors, and is stitched with UV-impervious Tenara/Goretex thread. Strong mounting points and a tent-like shape allow it to remain rigged even when the trades are huffing and puffing.
