Sun Shades

I needed to cut down on the solar gain in the cabin so I went to Wal-Mart and bought some nice, thick car solar shields that fold up for a cars windshield. The Admiral cut the sun shields to fit the windows and skylights then sewed bindings around the edges to give them a nice finish. The ones for the windows are simply held in place by fitting inside of the wooden trim. The Skylights shields are held in place by Velcro dots. The round tube in the picture of the skylight is my solar powered vent. These really make a difference.
