here in toronto canada they pull the boats out of the water each fall although some people keep theirs in the water with bubblers to keep the water from freezing
you see them with a wood frame with shrink wrapped plastic over them
many of the boats on shore are covered in
it comes in clear
if you could get some off cuts from a local marina that would be ideal
just throwing it out there.. i do not have any practical experience doing this

I have seen some types of plastic sheeting "welded" using an old tea-cloth and an iron set on high. I have personally used a heat-gun that I think I paid $20 for at the time. Check into that, if you have the leeway, as things like reclaimed plastic wrapping or discarded plastic sheeting can be reclaimed and used to great effect, and as it would be free, the material costs would be irrelevant.

I got the hub kit think really cheap on their kickstarter, and it was well within my capabilities to build.
If this version doesn't survive I'll probably just put an actual polytunnel up! I have a greenhouses at home (one a glass and aluminium, one super-insulated double glazed)- the geodesic is at my allotment which makes things much harder to build as the ground isn't level and there's no electricity or car access, and there's restrictions on what you can do and when you can be there.
Farmers know to never drive a tractor near a honey locust tree. But a tiny ad is okay:
