I just spent $1100 for a new bimini for my '78 O'Day 30. The bimini that was on there got shredded in a storm while the boat was out at the mooring. The bimini frame was junk that someone had made from aluminum. The new bimini is very nice with all stainless bows and hardware. It has a boot that stores the bimini at the backstay. It is all Sunbrella material. I considered Denise's suggestion but decided if I wanted stainless and Sunbrella the custom by the local boat canvas shop was not that much more.
