Is there a difference between the two? Does anybody have pictures of theirs?

not sure that this is what you are looking for.
skiers used 3 bimini's that I'm aware of(now 4 with the addition of the new tower moomba's have the option of getting). the infamouz Z5 cargo rack that everyone loves, but cost as much as a small used honda..
then they used 2 "standard" bimini's.
I have this one-the forward tower bimini. smaller, but less parts and keeps the bimini at tower height, hence out of the way and stores flat against the top of the tower-out of the way..

I really like the looks of the forward tower bimini. Keeping the bimini at tower height is huge.

And also a lot less coverage too though, rear passengers get no coverage at all with that design. I had that option and nixed it for a custom bimini, 6' long and i can still walk under np, glad i did.

ya the forward tower does really only provide some shade for driver and someone sitting next to them.

it works great for us here, but I can see where it would not be ideal for other areas. we have docks on our lake that we use when we want out of the sun for a few hours. if we didn't, I would have opted for the full bimini and sucked up the lower height.

On that supra look at where the back seat is in relation to where the back of the tower is at. I bet the people in the rear seat get as much shade as the front, but that is only a 20' boat it wouldn't work as nice on a 23'r

I know on my boat if you come down quick from the sundeck and dont look you will knock your buck teeth out

on my obv I would be adding the style that snaps on the tower and opens forward covering the driver well since from what Ive found I end up in the driver seat way longer then the rest

What kind of bimini is that, I am in the market.
