We bought a replacement dodger and sail cover from Genco Marine and were very pleased with the quality, plus the CAN$ exchange rate made the goods relatively inexpensive. Check their photo album for ideas http://www.gencomarine.com/dodgers/album.cfm many also show biminis. They seem to make dodgers/biminis for many stock boats.

We will need to replace our bimini soon, will doubtlessly buy from Genco. You can see a picture with our bimini at the link below. The challenge with the bimini is to not restrict access to the deck more than nesessary, with a dodger up and the bimini hold-down straps lead forward , getting out of the cockpit becomes a bit of a gymnastic act - a prime design consideration for a new installation. You also need to keep the winches clear. One thing we would do differently for a new installation, would be to get a bimini wiht only one support, not two.
