Re: cool cockpit BIMINI pic ideas please

Don't have pictures, but we have a friend with an I36.. does his own canvas work. He put a bar across the split backstays and runs a 'bimini' from that to the aft end of the dodger. When not needed it rolls up aft and ties around the bar.. no 'framework', no drilling holes in your coaming etc.

He also has 2 'covers'.. a canvas one for rainy days, and a mesh for sun.. provides shade while maximizing ventilation.

He has a solar panel mounted to the bar as well.
