There are a number of manufacturers of off-the-shelf biminis. Taylor is probably the most widely sold. You definitely need boat measurements to see what fits. Bimini measurements are length, width and height. Llimited sizes of length (6 foot most common) and height (30". 36", and 42" most common), but wider range in width. Standard frames are aluminum with plastic fittings. Upgrading to stainless fittings (and in a few cases stainless tubing) is possible. I have had good luck with one from Overton's and also with a Taylor.
