Wet damp conditions are not good for your ramp as the wood will more than likely rot after time. This should be taken into consideration before you make your ramp. When building the ramp, make sure to use galvanized screws or nails and use pressure treated wood, you should also paint it for extra protection.

Is shade cloths protective in rain ?

no - shade cloth is a mesh weave that is from 50% to 75% solid
that means that light and ultraviolet rays are controlled but water and rain can come through
to be protective in the rain you need a close weave material such as what is used in car covers

What is the difference between rain gear and regular rain coat?

Proper rain gear is very waterproof and made from breathable materials, allowing you to stay dry but also not need to sweat too much while wearing the coat. Real rain gear is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions whereas raincoats that are sold in high street stores are designed to protect against light rain showers but are more focused on fashion.

I want to build a skate ramp, however I need to know how to bend the wood into position?

For all but the top layer the wood should be bent with the grain. It bends much easier this way. The basic technique is to screw the bottom of your plywood in place, and have your helper(s) walk slowly up the transition bending it and holding it down with their weight against the frame as they go. Then you, and possibly others work your way up screwing in one row at a time. It's important to have the plywood held flush against the transition framing by your helper(s) when you screw it in. If you rely on the screws to pull the plywood flush, they'll pull through the plywood, or pull the plywood out of place.

Where do I find a shut off ramp for my traveling sprinkler?

You can order from Nelson, but the shipping cost is more than the part. You can make one fairly easy from a block of wood and a spike to keep it from moving

Weather Protection

This tent is properly protected from the rain, i used it and it was just fine, not a drop of rain came in.

Of course there was a bit of a condensation, but i haven't met a tent that didn't suffer from this problem when it rains.
