Bimini Top

Recommended Posts

SFD

Did or does anyone have an older Bu with a bimini?

The boat is a 95 Sunsetter.

I would like to mount a bimini this year and have questions:

1.) Overall width ( just outside the windsheild?)

2.) Forward location - approx a 30"-34" and did it rest in front of the windsheild when folded up?

3.) Did you use backers under the fiberglass at the main mounts?

4.) Is 60" enough in size?

5.) Are stainless poles needed?

6.) Not mounted to a tower -

Any help is appreciated.....

Thanks.

ISSUE IS CLOSED - Thanks for the advice - The Website is a great tool.

We have a bimini off our 95 sunsetter that came with the boat back in 95 just sitting in the garage, Its in good shape. We up graded a few years ago to a Titia I and their bimini system. I can get some measurements and photos for you if you have any interest.

1. You can mount one directly to the windshield, that's how the factory did it for the newer sunsetters

2. If you do (1) then you either take it off when folded or add those funky braces that you see on I/O runabouts

3. Again, no backers needed if you mount to windshield

4. Standard 5 foot is plenty big enough if you mount it centered properly

5. Nope....just really look "cool"....no problems with aluminum that I have noted

6. see 1.
