Re: Bimini or something else?

We call our cockpit enclosure, the circus tent. It's huge. Over six feet of head room and curves down the sides a bit to maximize sun protection. It does reduce visibility to the side when standing at the helm, but not sitting. Forward and aft visibility are nearly unobstructed. A few ducks and peaks and standing is no problem.

I often sit up on the windward side deck behind the helm wheel to catch the breeze and watch the sails and lookout for traffic. But, we would not consider being without it to escape the sun as needed.

Zero interference with rigging.
