well at first i thought when i bought my boat "i dont need a bimini" well now that we've had some crazy 95 degree days and i've boarded when it was raining a few times im thinking a bimini could be a great idea.

so how much for install and part for the bimini, and does it come color matched?

Expect to pay around $500 for a color matched bimini. I believe the factory top only comes in beige or grey though. I added a tower bimini from Monster Tower to our last boat that was a very good match. I think it was $495 delivered.

I did mine for around $200, starting with a standard 30” bimini from coversearch.com and replacing the tower cap screws with ones 1 ½” long then attaching the bimini using threaded 3/8 -16 standoffs. If you are handy with a ¾”conduit bender it’s a snap. 6 bends and 2 cuts later it was done, I will try and get some pics of it this weekend.

A friend of mine made one like that. Put it on a red MC and used red mat'l. It actually looks pretty good.......and certainly does the job
