Default What do you do for shade?

Any suggestions on a quick, easy to store way to put some shade over the cockpit? Not so much underway as when anchored

I did a Goggle search as Sydways suggested and came up with another OSO post http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...t=27098&page=3 for this shade http://lostbwana.com/bimini2.htm half the price and everyone seemed to think the quality was there. A friend of mine has an Anchor shade on his 25' Grady White. Provides shade for his cockpit which is not that big. My boat is a 382 Formula, I am thinking it would be great to shade the cockpit and the Sunpad, but that has to be about 8 X 16.

I have used an anchor shade for our 382 but have started carrying the factory bimini top. The bimini is 8 ft long and covers most of the cockpit. It lays on the sunpad or is propped up on the poles out of the way and can be left up shading the cockpit for WOT runs!!!
