Has anyone drawn a sheet metal china hat before?

I need to draw a china hat for a customer who is terminating a gas turbine chimney. I thought it would be fairly easy to model but I keep running into issues. I start out with a single line sketch from the origin 29" long, and raise one end up 1" and then try the revolve command which is where the problem lies. My thought was, if I could start this way, I would cut a small slit in the revolve feature and then convert to sheet metal.

 

Has anyone got a better way?

 

Thank you in advance!

Dan
