It's not likely to shear off in the wind due to the broad mounting surface - especially if you make a mounting plate to go on the interior side of the foam board, It can be adjusted to where your positive pressure from the swamp cooler keeps out dust and just ajar where it won't catch the wind, and can be closed altogether when needed. I bought one new once for about $17. I'd bring an extra foam triangle if possible just in case it does cause a problem.
Particle size distribution of BRP soils
Percentage by Weight, Particle Size, Material
65.3% is < 3 um, Clay
21.2% is 3 to 15 um, Silt
10.4% is 15 to 62.5 um, Silt
3.1% is > 62.5 um, Sand
In 2006, I watched a ez-up-canopy tent fly 50 feet into the air and come crashing down into a girls chest. She got a free helicopter ride - to Reno ER. (~ed. update on med-evac – you will be billed)
Foil tape should mount those pieces together and to the roof - strong enough in a blow or will it get ripped off and the wind powers dust in while it gets a toe hold to try and rip the yurt apart?
Angle of roof vs. wind catching if it blows directly at that side?
Think 25 mph, then 45 mph, then 75 mph.
One of the great things about the hexayurts is the way a strong wind flows around and over them.
And you've still made a hole in your roof. If near the top of a triangle, that could be trouble. If there's a heavy blow, you don't want a snapped roof panel letting the wind get a toe hold and tear the yurt apart.

With a down-facing elbow, you swamp-cooler air flow isn't fighting against wind blowing a flap closed.

Across the street is a Save Mart, Dollar Tree, someone had a wireless access point, and most importantly - a UPS store, which you can ship items to, picking up for a $5 fee (make sure you check their hours - if you're in late Sunday, you may not be happy waiting til Monday morning to pickup your packages). (do not ship to the UPS store at Firestone)
