Overton bimini on C27

I need a cheap bimini for my 78 c27. Overton's seems to have the best deals. Has anyone ever put one on a c27? If so, what size and how did you like it. The one I'm looking at is $209, 48"-54" H, 61"-66" W, and 6' long. Seems like it will work just fine and it gets good review. Opinions anyone??

I put one from Overton's on my C27. I'm pretty sure it was 73" wide. I mounted it to cars placed on my gunwale track. I had to cut the legs down about 6" to keep sufficient clearance under the mast - but it works great.

Here are some pics of my mountings:





But here is where I got the idea:

Thanks SD, that's where I got the idea for the Overton too. Glad to know the system works on a 27 too.
