    Default Z5 / Cargo Bimini - Show me the straps

    Thinking about ditching my surf racks if possible and letting 2 surf boards ride on my bimini. It's a shorter bimini and beefy enough that it should have plenty of support for 2 boards - nothing heavy.

    My cover guy would be more than happy to modify it for me if I can tell him what I want.

    So what do the straps on the top of a Z5 or Monster look like? Anyone able to share theirs?

    Bungee? Velcro? Cinch straps?



    I've done some googling but not seeing too much detail.

    Bungee cords up front and adjustable straps on the rear.

    Look at some of the pics in this thread for ideas. This is one of my mods for next season I think. Too many boards now.

    Pockets might be the easier answer?

    Pockets may be easier. Or pockets + one strap each.

    That's the beauty of the Z5! Only thing he's missing is a tube on top held down with the spider x web.

    I'm trying to work with an upholstery outfit to offer "pocket service" where you send in your bimini and they add the pockets. We'll see what happens.

    Test fit. I think it will work pretty well with a front pocket and rear strap. Not sure about the rocker of the surf style nose - if that will cause problems dimpling down or not... Then I can get rid of the longhorn racks.
