Great looking Outback. I think our next one might be yellow. What lake are you on in MI? We're on Portage Lake in Pinckney, MI.

Is that a custom bimini top?

I really like how you can mount it without having to drill anything.

Our boat is at our place up north on Lake George ( just a little north of clare)
The bimini top was new this year. I got it as a steel. Anyway I did not want to drill into my boat so I got these clamps from Rio at bosswake.

Love the yellow, like the whole package. Hope you get as much pleasure out of yours as we do ours:)

I will give Rio a call tomorrow.

Thank god my bimini top did not include the hardware. I would have drilled the holes for sure.

What is the thickness of the OBV tower? 1-5/8" ??

ouch, 100.00 bucks to tie down the bimini...? Eight little holes on mine 4 on the deck and 4 in the tower. don't even notice them.

Mat glenn, nice looking boat like the yellow, glad to see more outbacks, V or DD ??? we should do a poll

Outbacks vs others

DD vs. V drive was already done.

Actually it's more $$$.

You need 6 clamps for the OEM bimini.

The reason I ordered them was to raise my bimini top higher.

The clamps were worth the money to me. Just think, if something in the future happened like the one on the tower got pulled out leaving a hole, that would suck. The new boat bimini are attach diff and maybe better. I forget who just bought them from rio, but you may have an issue getting the top raised more then stock (putting it on the cross bar). If you look at my pic's the axis clamp is below the cross bar because when I tired it up above the cross bar I could not open it. It may work for yours. I did not care because my wife and I are not to tall and we don't even have to duck. One option for you if you still need it raised is put the clamps up higher and you could cut some off the metal tubes of the top and put back on the plastic cap. Just an idea!!
