Re: Need some shade, Considering a Bimini,

It's long been a theory of mine that no one should be allowed to be a naval architect until they have spent a year or two installing biminis and dodgers.

My best suggestion is to contact a couple of marine canvas shops and get ideas and bids from them. Many of them have photo galleries that may have good ideas on design. Get them to come out to your boat and look at the situation.

I recommend spending the bucks and getting stainless framing/fittings and high quality fabric like Sunbrella. That investment will be well worth it unless you are planning on selling your boat soon.
