Bimini for Wauquiez Hood 38 Mark 1

I have just bought a Wauquiez Hood 38 Mark 1 - this is the one with the submarine hatch on deck.

The boat has a dodger, but no bimini. Because of the need to be able to get on deck to go below, mounting a bimini needs to be carefully done so that it does not become a nuisance in normal cruising or a menace in heavy weather.

I cannot really forego it, because I'm fair and the boat is in the tropics (Langkawi, Malaysia).

If anyone has photographs of this boat with a bimini, and/or recommendations of where to turn to get good examples, I'd be appreciative. I've already emailed the Hood design people, and will do the same to Wauquiez.

Thanks in advance for any help.

S.
