Hi Fraser

I don’t think there is a standard tent arrangement (if there ever was it has got lost in the mists of time).

I have a very ‘heath-robinson’ affair on Helene (one of the jobs that never got to the top of the list!)
Have you seen the posts about Hiran’s tent here and Chris Green’s excellent tent on A169 Elle here?

They often make use of the boom sitting on the mainsheet horse in its raised position.
Have you got any photos of your cover ?
