No More Skeeters

My Number One made a screen for the main and forward hatches that allows a nice flow through breeze without mosquito intrusion.
Double layer of stretch tulle, full hook and loop perimeter - one side sewn to screen, the other sticky backed onto the hatchway, one big ol' long zipper.
Field tested beside a marsh reserve, it works incredibly well. No bugs! Breeze friendly! Completely Deet free!
