When I bought SKYLER two years ago, it came with 6 stainless steel posts about 3 ft long. The lower end of each post is welded to a squared hoop that fits over the top handrail and is secured with a stainless steel pin. The tops are fitted with a hook. I have recently made a cockpit boom tent to fit these posts, using canvas to match our stack packs. It is necessary to untie the forward lazy jacks on the mizzen but the cover works perfectly – stretched athwart-ships with shock cord ties and tensioned fore and aft with central cords to the mast and the back end of the mizzen boom. Looking forward to trying it in sunny weather next year!
