Default Ideas for bow canopy for new baby

I have a new baby and was looking for bow canopy ideas that might work for my Pathfinder 2600 TRS to keep him in the shade. I feel like the bow rails would be a good attachment point. Would probably disassemble or fold up something when running and hoping for no permanent mods. Thanks

It sounds like you are not interested in a good full protection bow dodger, just a shade canopy so how about something like this?:

Get an inexpensive nylon tarp off Amazon. I bought an equinox egret for about 30 bucks. Ripstop, lightweight, very nice.
Lash to rail or top with Paracord. Roll it up when done to the size of a coke can to quart jar depending on size. Put him in the floor in the vibrating bouncy chair. Oh yeah!

This is a 6x8. I had 2 solid glass rods I didn't use, so I put 30 dollars worth of roller guides on them (15 each), stripped the guides and beautified them, add Paracord and voila. I use a bigazz mushroom anchor on the stern to keep it pointed into the sun...
There is this group in Florida I called about these awesome rod holder tops. IT WAS $2400! I'll take $70.
