    I am at 21.5 hours on my Mondo and have run most of the hours with the bimini up. I don't have the rubbing problem. It is close however and I did have to adjust the straps really tight. Didn't tear anything in the process (thank god).

    I'm having the same problem with my Mondo '14. If you put the rope over the bimini, it seems to pull down on the top, if you have it under, it clearly rubs the stitching as you cross the wake. I chose the latter as it seemed to be less damaging, albeit unnecessary. I also had trouble connecting it the first time with the straps, but after some steady pulling we got it the stretch out and be a non-issue. I've posted a pick of my top open looking towards the stern, and you can see it curves upward and the rope would put serious stress on it the frame of the bimini top.

    any suggestions?

    We have about 35 hours on our Mondo with the bimini up most of those hours. Once the slack it out of the rope for wake boarding, skiing, kneeboarding it clears the bimini. I have adjusted the straps a few times since new. Next time we are out I will try and get a picture with the rope.


    We do get the rope snagged on the upper racks sometimes.

    Your bimini looks too loose. When I pull the strap down I have to pull the bimini down slightly with one hand. The fabric should to tight.

    I am on my second one. I have not used the velerco straps yet to let it stretch out good first. I have ruined one WB rope so far due to it rubbing and catching on the seam in the center. For surfing we go under the bimini. I got a feeling I am going to come up with my on fix to get rid of the duck bill. Hate to say SC missed it on the bimini for '14.
