rmtayloriii For what it's worth and I'm not installing panels, my canvas guy recommended to have a horizontal brace from the front bow to the back, the higher up the better. He also recommended verticle support bars on the back bow.

The canvas guy thinks mounting the bimini bows on the deck would look cleaner. I'm thinking of mounting them to the stern railing like they do at the factory. I like that look best anyway. What do you think? Any pictures would be helpful for design.

Thank you.

Fairly recently we added solar panes on top of our rail mounted bimini and I'm now trying to figure out how to stiffen the entire structure. If I had my druthers I'd druther go deck mounted for the rigidity.
