Specs. re: Design and construcion of bimini cover for Crealock 34
I am considering the fabrication and install of a bimini for my 1989 Pacific Seacraft 34. At the stern section above the helmsman's seat, the beam is much more narrow than the beam about five feet forward. The difference in beam is more than three feet at the two locations. I would like the bimin to cover the helmsman's seat forward to about three feet forward of the binnacle.
Regarding the construction of a bimini, I would appreciate input on what other PSC 34 owners have found satisfactory. I would like an attractive rail mounted bimini that somehow can be folded back and covered by a boot when not in use. It would be great if someone can recommend a canvas shop that has the patterns for a useful and goodlooking bimini. Specs would be appreciated.
I do not want to see somone muck up the job. The boat has never had a bimini or dodger for fear of ruining the graceful lines of the boat. Now I must have a bimini for protection from the sun. Dodger may follow.
Thanks for reading this.
Any discussion is welcome.
"The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore... unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seek victory over these things that seem impossible... it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors... to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown."
