I have received material for a shelter for my Scamp. I have snaps to hold the material but no poles to hold the material up. Some have used ten poles but I have no idea where they got the poles or how the poles were attached.

It would be nice to know how those who have a shelter like any changes that they might make or if they love what they have.

If you decide to use poles then I suggest "Tent Pole Technologies" out of Seattle.
I suggest a tent without poles or a single pole that forms a hoop.

Thanks Howard, I was intending to have a low profile single pole shelter. I also would have a small one to do personal business if other people were around. This shelter would be nice if I left the boat on the water to keep rain out.

Before I am done I probably be a sewing machine expert. hee hee

Like you I built a SCAMP and this photo is of the no pole tent I use. It is darn near perfect for the job and dry even in driving rain and snow/ice. I have recently tested it in difficult conditions and wouldn't change anything.
Hope this helps you decide how to proceed.
