Wayne,
My main sheet traveler is aft same as yours, that's why I only put up my bimini when at anchor or motoring. I am working on adding a dodger to correct that issue by moving the main sheet forward and using the secondary winches to travel.

Take care of th' Admiral for sure. My bride often uses a throwable PFD and rests in the companionway, it's a cool seat when heeling.

I'm so cheap. I use a blue plastic tarp for a boom tent when moored/anchored/docked and a wide brimmed hat when undersail.

I actually prefer to sail with the bimini down. But my wife wants to stay out of the sun. We use to move a beach umbrella on each tack to a PVC pipes wire tied to the stations on either side of the companionway. It actually worked well until the wind got over 15 kts. Then it would tend to turn inside out.
