    Default Bimini Top Extension

    Hey gang, I've been looking for and making drawings of bimini tops and extensions since last season and finally came up with an idea I liked. Took it to a top builder in my region and this is what I got.

    Of course, I can never upload an image to this forum so I have provided a link with some pictures. If you're thinking about more shade, this is worth a look.

    That is pretty slick! Very nicely done.

    Hey, thanks for the assist there. Never occurred to me to use inline code.

    Yea, I really wanted a top that was low to the boat to improve coverage but didn't want to give up access from a dock. We'll see how well this thing works in the real world of wind and waves.

    Is that the cargo rack bimini? I thought hard about one of those.

    That's trick. Is it a two piece top? Also, how does it fold up for storage?

    Yup, two pieces. The original top that covered the driver and spotter and the extension that covers the rest of the cockpit. They zip together. Here's a picture of it packed up and ready to hit the highway.



    If I want to take it all the way off I can pull some pins and the frame comes away too.
