I actually prefer to sail with the bimini down. But my wife wants to stay out of the sun. We use to move a beach umbrella on each tack to a PVC pipes wire tied to the stations on either side of the companionway. It actually worked well until the wind got over 15 kts. Then it would tend to turn inside out.
