    When I lived in Canberra there used to be a mob called "Revolve" near the Belconnen tip, but I guess they would be near any tip and they had heaps of galv. Bugger the colourbond, get "zinc alum" instead. Beware of the polycarbonate, it lets the light in but it is also hot.

    I don't understand how the boat tarp didn't work - did the rain get under it? In which case the tin won't help either.

    Best thing for attaching roofing tin to anything is hex screw about 2cm deeper than the wiggle on the tin (Eg 4.5 or 5cm total), and you screw the high point or hill not the valley which is closest/shortest to what your attaching. Because the water travels in the valleys and if you put holes in the valleys your roof will leak.

    Same with wiring the roof on. If you decide to put holes in and wire it on. Actually I'd get some nice fat pine stud (wall frame) poles (2by4s or 2by2s) and wire that on and then hex screw the tin to the pine. And make sure your overlaps are at least three wiggles wide. Or it will leak. should be able to find the pine or similar at Revolve too. Just make sure you're confident it will hold tin in a breeze. Ie it's not falling to bits, or brittle. Avoid permapine for this reason. It's toxic to dogs and it goes brittle.

    But I'd still want to know where the rain got in originally. You might need to make a raised floor eg old timber pallets with some reject vinyl over the top (and spider spray underneath) or similar.
