Full cockpit biminis are wonderful, especially if you are the type of sailor who likes spending a lot of time...well, sailing. A bimini changes the whole character of 6-8 hours out in a bright sun, removing the heat, sweat and sun burn otherwise so common.
If you install the bimini frame properly, it need not interfere with your running rigging
, but it does cut down on visibility a bit. Same pluses/minuses you see with a dodger.
How I handled it was
...Early May I'd launch with the the dodger installed...around mid-June, I'd remove the dodger and install the bimini...in early Sept I'd remove the bimini and install the dodger.
