Re: How do I get some shade?
The forward unit really is a dodger without a front panel. If you really like this boat, and want a bimini, you need to relocate the traveller to the cabin top.
IMHO, that is well worth the tradeoffs to have a real bimini, and the overall cost will be chump change versus one case of skin cancer. Even in NE, having had a bimini, I would not run a boat without one.
Certified...in several regards...
