Re: Bimini Top
Many fold their bimini back, when actually sailing, and put it up when stationary. If up while sailing, you can put a clear window above the helm, so that at least you can see the windex. I don't find leaning around the side for sail trim to be all that difficult.
For the C27, the question may be how confined you become beneath the boom. A bimini can arguably be a safety measure, keeping folks heads from entering the boom swing. But, if its so low and uncomfortable to move around the cockpit to sail, it would be counterproductive. Fielder's choice.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
