I built something like that for my cat, but I used the black screen fabric that you find on a roll at Home Depot and I then attached it by putting in grommets and using bungees. I found it works much better with the wind. My two cents

No I am with you Edd. I looked every where here in Montrose, even Home Depot put I didnt find it. However I was looking of a 6X8 tarp of that style. By the foot makes sence too. On eBay they were running around $20, but I think it is worth it. p/s on ebay you can get it in white as well I think that might be even cooler.

$20 a foot or for the whole tarp?

I spent $130 on a bimini shipped from eBay this spring. It is exactly like the one below but was cheaper because of a discontinued color.

54" H x 8' L x 73"-80" W 4-Bow Bimini Top 5880-WMAX | eBay

Paid $65 for all stainless hardware from these guys.

AISI 316 Stainless Steel Marine Boat Bimini Top Cap 7/8" | eBay

Total was under $200, just as strong as the $520 river sombrero.
Held up great to the Deso winds this summer.
I realize it is a bit pricier than $40 but super strong.
