I have seen alloy fittings that take a bolt rope riveted onto either side of the boom, the tent, with a bolt rope sewn in can be rolled up against the boom when not in use, or removed altogether for passage making. much more controllable than being draped over the boom and keeps it clear of lazy jacks if you are using them

When I built the stackpack I added a zip either side so a tent could be zipped on. Thanks to VB for that one. 

Both great ideas. Had been considering something like this, but decided to start simple. Last night i managed to cut and fold two hems and attach one webbing loop in a corner. All held together with sailmaking tape. Spare time is not something I'm particularly blessed with at this point. Will see how it works out and when I've a little more time I really like the idea of something that actually attaches each side of the boom.

This was finished on weds afternoon before the lockdown . It’s staying at the loft until I can pick up 😫 . Doing my head in , but at least I will have a very good reason to go sailing immediately the

There's only so many projects you can do with supply challenges.   I'm glad I started the replacement floor boards just before lockdown.  Almost done. 

She's on her way

There is a very ubiquitous alloy extrusion used on caravans and anything that needs a bolt rope attachment, generally pop riveted. ( Ullrich NZ ) extrusion light Awning rail UA1430. Double sided awning rail UA1406. Numbers may be the same in France / Switzerland or will have a European equivalent No.

Thanks Steve, I think I'll look that up. 3M 5200 would also do a bang up job of holding that on the boom, I expect.
