I have a few ships with some parts of the their decks I want to cover up (like an entire bow or stern). I was initially thinking of putting a canopy or tent on them. I have seen some photos of tents or canopies errected on ships for events like port visits for special occasions. I also thought about fabricating a large tarp or something.
However I have no earthly idea how to go about doing either of those things. Does anyone have any tips, tricks, experience, or better ideas?
