You are right as far as the wind around here..we don't get much and not too often.
Way too much time involved in replacing the zipper. I'll see if I can crimp the mechanism to make it work. The screen zipper works fine. If all fails, it could be used as a fair weather tent.
Ease into the crimping process. Too mush pressure could be trouble.
